Technical Cereal & Pulses Grains Grading Training
Cereal grain 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.
