Aquagram Standard Deviations of Moisture in Mixtures of Wet and Dry Corn.

The blending of high-moisture corn was determined by calculating aquagram standard deviations from patterns of millivolt signals recorded as the corn passed through a Tag-Heppenstall moisture meter. The higher the proportion of the wet corn or the higher the difference in moisture between the components of the mixture, the higher the standard deviation of the aquagram. Kernel size and shape, 3% broken corn and foreign material, or 10% mold and heat damaged kernels in the sample did not interfere with the detection.
