Regularly testing the moisture content of your yields is crucial for a number of reasons:
- Excess moisture in stored grain or forage can lead to the growth of mold fungi.
- Nutrients can be lost when crops are ensiled with excess moisture, as the weep or drain-off contains valuable nutrients.
- Harvesting hay with too low of a moisture content can result in heavy leaf drop-off, which reduces the feeding value of the crop.
- Forage with moisture content between 30% and 40% can lead to storage combustion, potentially destroying both the forage and the storage structure.
- Ensiling process, a crucial step for crop fermentation, requires moisture content to be within a specific range for optimal results.
- Knowing the moisture content of your crops ensures that they are stored and used at the correct moisture level, resulting in better yields and higher-quality crops.
The Koster Moisture Tester Platinum Series provides you with an essential tool in any crop production operation, and with its easy-to-use design, accurate readings and durable construction, it makes moisture testing simple and efficient.
