Follow up course for seed samplersOn Monday 23 November, 10 experienced seed samplers from various seed & cereal companies in Denmark attended the follow-up course for seed samplers.
They were introduced to a new ISTA log, an updated "Instructions in Seed Sampling " and their future collaboration and affiliation with the Tystofte Foundation.
The syllabus for the course is the aforementioned Instructions - a "bible" of almost 300 pages, which contains comprehensive information about, among other things certification, calculation of the number of samples, various methods of sampling and handling, including special rules for the use of a sleeve type sampling stick, regarding one-compartment type and separate compartment type respectively, for ISTA sampling, as well as rules for import and much more.
Due to Corona restrictions, 2 seed samplers could unfortunately not participate in the follow-up course - their update is therefore postponed to 2021.
Tystofte Foundation thanks the participating seed samplers for a really good day with many exciting discussions.
Training of new seed samplersCurrently, 12 new eed samplers are being trained from various seed & cereal companies in Denmark and they are examined in theoretical seed sampling. Subsequently, the trainees are also examined in practical seed sampling before they are fully authorized to take representative samples of small packages, big bags, boxes and even whole wagon loads.
