WE ARE SO MUCH MORE THAN JUST A RING CHECK SCHEME...….
Prior to harvest we arrange for the NIR equipment for all UKGTN full members to be standardised to the network sub-master, thus meaning we start harvest on a level playing field.
During harvest the steering committee will monitor the accuracy and reliability of the calibrations against the reference method, thus ensuring maximum confidence in the results from your NIR equipment.
And yes, we do run ring checks as well. Currently we run these for barley, wheat, oats and oil seed rape.
We also run a ring check for erucic acid on oil seed rape and for mycotoxin in cereal samples.
Please use the contact page if you would like more information about any of our ring check schemes.
