USDA/GIPSA Moisture Meter Change
Effective May 1, 2013 USDA/GIPSA completed its shift to the UGMA technology for offical moisture determinations for all grains. As of May 1, 2013 the DICKEY-john GAC 2100 will no longer be used for "official" grading. USDA/GIPSA developed and has now implemented this new technology to improve accuracy and consistancy in moisture measurement for the U.S. grain industry.
The UGMA technology not only improves accuracy but has a number of other advantages for grain elevators, grain terminals and processors. Important among these advantages are:
- Improved repeatability
- More accurate test weight readings
- Faster testing (10 seconds)
- Ability to test samples down to 0 degrees F.
- Improved results on immature grain samples (i.e. soybeans and rice)
We look forward to visiting with you relating to DICKEY-john and this new technology. We are offering additional trade-in allowances for DICKEY-john GAC 2100 units. Please give us a call for more information
