Lab & Quality Control
Our lab and store are fully staffed all year. We monitor a variety of elements, such as temperature and moisture, in order to maintain the quality of stored crops.
This ensures the grain is stored in the best possible condition from point of delivery to point of sale.
A series of checks and tests are conducted on a rota basis on each of the 36 storage areas at Aberdeen Grain. Each storage area has a specified number of sample points to ensure a representative sample of storage area is gained from each sample. Each storage area is sampled at least once a month meaning that the lab conducts tests on at least 130 samples per month. Depending on the crop, nitrogen, germination, moisture, specific weight and oil content are checked.
