NIR SPECTROMETRY FOR CEREAL AND FEED QUALITY CONTROL

Objective



Near infrared Spectrometry offers considerable potential for very fast determination of the properties of agricultural products (protein, water, fat content). However, the method requires a calibration procedure which is difficult to develop.

Intercomparisons organized by a group of laboratories under the auspices of the Commission's Agricultural Services (DG VI) for the characterization of silage gave very disappointing results.

The present project will be conducted on the determination of protein in wheats and a rather rigorous approach will be followed to calibrate the spectrometers. The objective of the project is to test methodology to establish correlation between spectrometers so that acceptable and reliable results can be obtained.
