Wheat Analysis System Methods – Wheat Moisture (WMIST)

A small sample is ground on a Tecator Cemotec 1090 Sample Mill. The reference test uses 2 g of ground wheat heated in an aluminum dish in a forced-draft oven for 40 min at 130, allowed to cool and weighed. AACC modified Method 44-16 (1) (OVENWMIST). Generally, 10% or 3 samples (whichever is higher) are used per nursery to obtain the oven wheat moisture.
