Barley

Barley-1
Sampling and Grading

VIEW METHOD

Summary
Barley is an agricultural commodity, and its sampling, inspection, grading, and certification are regulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). In Canada, the regulatory agency is the Canadian Grain Commission. The USDA outlines in substantial detail the factors to be considered. This method describes the grading process and the sampling of barley so as to obtain a portion that is representative of a lot of grain, a requisite for meaningful laboratory evaluation of the material.
