Moisture Measurement--Unground Grain and Seeds

Published by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, St. Joseph, Michigan

ASAE  ASAE S352.2   April  1988

Keywords: Grain, Moisture, Seeds

1 Purpose and scope

1.1 This Standard is to provide a uniform method for determining the moisture content of unground samples of agricultural seeds. Only those seeds are included for which documented comparisons with the Karl Fischer method are available. These techniques should become common practice and their use referenced in all technical presentations where moisture content determinations have been a factor. Deviations from these methods should be reported.

1.2 Specifying sampling procedures is not within the scope of this recommendation. It will be assumed that the sample used for analysis is representative of the quantity from which it was taken.
