The first essential step in grain grading is to obtain a correct and representative sample. Cars, trucks, wagons or barge loads should be sampled with a double tube probe in five or more places using an open handle grain probe. Also used for plastics, Seedburo open handle grain probes are made to conform to USDA specifications.
These Open Handle Grain Probes are also used for plastics, constructed of heavy gauge Brass or light but durable aluminum they are built to last.
Open-ended probes without partitions are more convenient to empty and are widely used by the grain elevator operators for obtaining samples from truck loads. After sample is obtained, probe is held upright and sample is dumped from the handle. These probes are designated with the OH at the end of the product code.
