Micro-Quality: Every Kernel Counts

by Elise Schafer | Feed&Grain | Posted 14 June 2011

Technology drives inovation.  In the grain industry, this adage can be applied to everything from automation to invoicing.  Notably, post-harvest grain quality measurement technology has proven to be a critical, ever-evolving tool for the industry.  Quick and accurage mycotoxin testing has improved feed safety and blending techniques; however, they are limited in their ability to provide a snapshot of quality attributes at an individual kernel level.
