It all comes down to what you want to do with your moisture meter. Neither system has a distinct advantage over the other, however for continuous checking of larger samples, pre and post drying, the AP 6060 is a quick and simple to use, whole grain, capacitance meter which enables fast throughput and is one of the most accurate on the market. It’s large sample size gives a more representative sample.
The Sinar AgriPro marries the convenience of whole grain testing with a small sample size – ideal for spot checks around the farm & field. Resistance instruments require less sample, tend to be ‘grinder’ style and are somewhat slower to use. Having said that, our Sinar FarmPro meter quickly measures moisture content, after a simple one step grinding/measuring operation, using only either 9ml or 11ml of sample, and is ideal for field walking prior to cutting.
