Measuring moisture content in grains at every point in time is something every grain and poultry farmer and should practice. So if you are wondering how to measure the moisture content in your grains, you are at the right place. In this post, we share with you how to use our GrainMate Grain Moisture Meter to measure the moisture content in your grains.
Why do you even need to measure the moisture content?
Measuring the moisture content in grains helps to know whether they are ready for storage or not. It helps the farmer make decisions such as continuing to dry the grains for a little longer or not. This is because high moisture content leads to the growth of aflatoxin-producing mold that destroys grains and causes farmers to lose produce.
Secondly, if you are a commodities trader, many buyers require you to meet certain moisture content standards before they will accept your grain. For corn, many buyers want the moisture content to remain below 13%. Hence it is important that as a trader, you know the moisture content of your grains to avoid losing investment.
