In general, one is required to take t'rumos and maasros from grain only once the pile of grain is been smoothed (מירוח הכרי, meruach hak'ri). (I think other halachos also kick in then.) What exactly is this act of smoothing, and why would a farmer do it?

    What do you do when you finish raking leaves on your lawn? Do you square off the pile a little? Push it together a bit? – Double AA Aug 8 '13 at 18:22
