testing corn for moistureFive years ago, Cornbelt Testing, Inc. wrote of the importance of moisture testers in the ability of a farm to market high-quality grain, corn, and soybean crops. Moisture testers, as we stated, by allowing farmers greater control over the crops to prevent additional costs from over-drying, loss of quality from under-drying, and the ability to meet ethanol industry requirements.

We encouraged those using moisture testers to be sure to read the manufacturer’s manual, particularly regarding compensation methods for hot and cold temperatures. In recent years, moisture testers — including the Dickey-John GAC2500UGMA — have been developed with built-in compensation features that take the guesswork out of temperature fluctuations. Other new technologies that have come about and since then include enhanced data storage and share processing and reduced analysis time.

While technology is surging forward, some things remain the same. One of those things is that the right amount of moisture is key to the quality of your crop and profitability. Corn Belt Testing, Inc. is a distributor of the testing and grading equipment and service that is vital to the grain, feed, and seed industries. We currently offer five different moisture testers, including portable and bench models. If you are unsure as to what moisture tester would work best in your situation, ask us. We would be glad to advise you.
