Moisture Testers

According to agricultural nutrition experts, the single most important factor influencing the quality of grain, hay and silage is moisture. Moisture management is a continuous process that requires measuring tools. Protect your investment by testing moisture content before, during and after the season.

John Deere moisture testers, whether baled hay testers, windrow hay testers, grain or grinding grain testers, operate accurately and quickly, measuring moisture in the field, bin or barn.
