The collection of samples of grain: an assessment of current methods and problems

, : The collection of samples of grain: an assessment of current methods and problems. HGCA Project Report ( 118): 21 pp.

The results of a questionnaire on seed/grain sampling practices sent to farmers, storekeepers and end users of seed/grain, are presented. Crops including cereals, grain legumes and oilseed plants were covered. Most sampling was done to assess grain/seed quality and to monitor for storage problems. Hand spears, hand scoops, vacuum samplers and automatic lorry probes were the most common types of sampling equipment used.
