1.Paddy of a known source should be selected with grain moisture content that is typical for grain harvested in the area.
2. The paddy should be cleaned to remove very few impurities (straws, etc).
2. Before loading the materials, mix the paddy and take at least 10 samples of the paddy of 10g each to determine variance in moisture content.
3. In addition, sample of 500g of wet paddy is taken for laboratory analysis. If possible, take the entire weight of the paddy before loading.
