Measuring Quality Parameters in Malt Barley

Moisture and Protein Content of Grain

In this webinar you will learn about:

  • General considerations for the creation of quantitative NIR models, including best practices and practical guidelines.
  • Typical applications of malt barley quality analysis.
  • An example of how ASD systems can be used to measure moisture and protein content of barley seed which affect malt and brewing quality.
