Cereal & Pulses Inspection, Grading & Rapid Mycotoxin Testing Course
Cereal & Pulse inspection & grading standards facilitates grain merchandising through the use of uniform tests and terms. Grading of cereals most importantly helps in ensuring continued improvement in the quality of grains in the market and ultimately significantly contributes to good health of the citizen at large. This will eventually reduce the prevalence of diseases associated with poor handling and storage of grains. Grades are assigned based on a sample’s ability to meet tolerances or specifications for various grading factors. A grading factor represents the physical condition of grain. This condition can be a result of growing conditions, time of harvesting, handling procedures or storage practices. The training will also keenly look at the East Africa Community (EAC) standards on cereals and pulses.
