Objective
Test weight is an indication of soundness in grains. In wheat, there is a positive correlation between test weight and flour yield. Test weight is a criterion in grading of grains, especially wheat. Most countries report test weight in kg/hl. In the United States, it is reported as lb/bu. This method determines the weight of dockage-free grain required to fill a level Winchester bushel measure (2150.42 in.3 or 35.24 dm3 [dm3 = liter]).
