Sample Preparation

Wheat or flour samples are logged into the WAS computer system and assigned a crop YEAR, NURSERY number, and a SAMPLE# number. All wheat samples are frozen at -20 for 2 days to kill insects, cleaned on a Carter dockage (Simon-Carter Co., Minneapolis, MN) tester if necessary, measured for test weight and then scoured in a Cyclone Grain Scourer (model 6, Forster and Son, Ada, OK) and sub-sampled for proximate analysis.
