Sampling Information: Proper sampling is very important. Here is a quick step-by-step sampling procedure
Samples should be collected when filling the bin and should represent the entire bin. Sampling should be done from different places in the grain stream (front, back and side) as it flows out of the truck since grain and weed seeds of different density will be in greater proportion in different parts of the stream.
Place your bin or field sample into sealed sample bags. Make one bag for yourself and one for selector.
Take your samples to the selector ensuring that the sample is labeled with variety name, field number or name and bin number.
Harvests of different varieties, and even different weather conditions, should be stored separately.
The above recommendations will help produce high quality malting barley.
