Barley-9
Kernel Brightness (Instrumental)

Summary
The intensity of surface discoloration of barley kernels (“staining,” “weathering”) can be evaluated quantitatively by the degree to which light is reflected. Several commercially available instruments have demonstrated the potential for such measurement. The high correlation coefficients between the three instruments tested permit the various scales employed by the individual instruments to be interconverted using the formulas provided in this method.
