Last week, NAEGA joined the National Grain and Feed Association (NGFA) and the North American Millers Association (NAMA) in a letter to the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS). The letter follows an AMS request for feedback regarding improvements to the Falling Number (FN) test for wheat.
FGIS will be adopting a mathematical correction to its FN test designed to provide an indication of the amount of sprout damage that has occurred within a specific wheat sample.
In the letter, NAEGA, NGFA, and NAMA support further review and testing of the proposed change and its eventual implementation in 2019 in order to avoid any disruptions in crop marketing.
