This report represents a continuation of analysis concerned with the patterns and methods of distributing grains and oilseeds from North Dakota. This series began with the analysis of 1956-57 data and was published in Agricultural Economics Reports 15, 17, 44, 56, and 86 and Agricultural Experiment Station Bulletin 462. The compilation and analysis of data for the year 1967-68 in this series was assumed by the Upper Great Plains Transportation Institute. Also, the data representing the 1967-68 period were the first results of the requirements of the North Dakota Public Service Commission that all North Dakota elevators report monthly movements of grains and oilseeds by truck and rail. Prior to 1967-68, these data had been estimated from questionnaires completed by a sample of country elevators.
