Why measure moisture in grain?
The moisture content of grain must be kept at the perfect level in order to yield the highest economic return. Too moist, and the grain will spoil in storage; too dry, and the reduced weight will lessen its value, as grain is sold by weight. The key is to get the most moisture, while still staying under the suggested moisture levels.
Each grain type is different, so a working knowledge of the moisture levels that are acceptable for each is necessary. Also needed are the proper instruments for measuring the moisture level with accuracy, so moisture can be regulated during each step—from processing to storing.
With varying moisture content in grains, on-line Near-Infrared (NIR) moisture measurement technology is a key tool in ensuring optimum efficiency and quality control. The ability to measure moisture and make process adjustments during the production cycle is crucial.
