Grain Inspection and Grading

What is the value of your grains, the quality and quantity of the grains produced? All grain procuring /testing agencies mark the lots of your grains according to the set standard quality. It is a fool proof process to ensure that the buyers and sellers both are in profits.
Every year, many of the grains samples are sent by farmers and grain retailers to get the quality-grading certificate from the department. The owners of the discarded grain samples are also given tips on how to improve the quality and quantity of their lots. Grain inspection services are available to inspect the grain quality in the best manner. Laboratories of the inspection offices are equipped with modern technology with well-qualified and experienced inspection officers.
Grain Inspection and Grading is mainly done before the imports and exports for the maximum benefits of everyone. There are many private food grain inspecting companies which make sure that with the right tools and grading that how much is the selling or cost price of those specific grains. The process involved is huge and not at all cost-friendly as it requires huge budget to get the gradings done but to get the genuine rates out of the bulk grains, this system is required.
This promotion of agricultural standardization is an important aspect of ensuring the good quality of food grains and to provide best to everyone. The samples of the grains have to be taken as grading and inspecting in bulk is not at all possible. There are many parameters on which the quality of the sample of the grains is determined proficiently. Namely:
  • The color, appearance and wholesomeness of the seeds.
  • Damaged grains should not be considered.
  • Perfect moisture content
  • Broken and damaged grains should be opted out
  • The foreign unwanted matter is unacceptable in the sample lot.
The foreign matter like husk, straw, weed, chaff is not at all acceptable in the grain lot. The lot should not include mixed types of grains like the sampling is of wheat but it accompanies pulses or rice seeds along with it. The cereals should not be damaged even slightly and broken which affects the quality of these grains. These steps are to make sure that the buyer buys the best and the consumer also consumes the best.
While determining the grading process, the inspectors who are on inspection make sure the safety measures of the determining lot. Like the grains should be pesticide free and not come in any chemical contact. The poisonous heavy metals should also be kept away from the grains. Special attention should be given that if the grains are in contact of the uric acid or microbial waste.

The grading system ensures that the agricultural businesses should not  suffer of the genuine price they deserve. One more benefit which the farmer has is that having his grains graded and given the position of the best quality to their grains will also provide easy loans to them from banks. The process of middlemen is also eliminated through the grading processes which usually leads to the deceit to the farmer's genuine grain product prices.
