Five years ago, Agriculture.com wrote of the importance of moisture testers in the ability of a farm to market high quality grain, corn and soybean crops. Moisture testers, the article stated, allow farmers greater control over the crops by preventing additional costs from over-drying, loss of quality from under-drying, and the ability to meet ethanol industry requirements.
The article 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 since the Agriculture.com article was written 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.
