How much grain is needed to take an accurate test? Will a small pail full work or do you need a bin full or can you just probe a bit in the combine hopper?

Asked by: Lennard
Thank you for your inquiry. The probe will as long as the needles are fully submerged in the grain.

would it work for bread crumb to test moisture?

Asked by: Carlito625
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, this meter is not going to work with bread crumbs. The material substance and density is too different from raw grain. Please contact our Tech Support if we can be of any further assistance.
