As far away as Japan and Bangladesh, our Riceter has had a major impact on the agricultural world since its creation in 1961. It has taken farming from an art to a science, providing usable data that removes many of the once immeasurable challenges of farming.
When Kett developed the Riceter over 70 years ago, it was created for farmers in the fields and rice paddies of Japan, empowering them with a portable device that could ensure the quality of their crops. It revolutionized the way moisture could be measured in rice and grains, providing a more predictable, stable way to successfully harvest rice and other grain crops.
According to the US Rice Producers Association, rice provides 20% of the world's dietary energy supply with the average American consuming 25 lbs of rice per year.
With the weather now warming up as we get closer to Summer – it’s important to regularly check your grain quality. Any small change in moisture can be costly.
The amount of moisture in a product can affect various quality components, as well as transactions based on weight. When dealing in bulk shipments, even the smallest errors can add up to large profit losses over time.
