Grain Quality Measurement Kit for Standardizing Grain Quality Procedures

The Grain Quality Measurement (GMQ) Kit is being designed to provide uniform testing of grain quality between smallholder farmers and traders. The GMQ Kit will contain several pieces of portable test equipment and a simple display and interface to the guide the user through the testing. The kit also contains record keeping electronics to automatically store the results as part of the procedure. The data can then be retrieved or routinely uploaded through the cellular network (where internet is not available) for analysis of accumulated data for current quality and incremental improvements in grain produced in villages under intervention.
