Optimising oilseed yield can bring commercial advantages and operational efficiencies. To ensure the highest yield, the amount of oil and water in seeds must be accurately measured at all stages of the production cycle, from plant breeding through commercial agriculture to milling and processing. Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) provides a reliable, precise and affordable platform for such measurements.
NMR is a fast and easy technique, ideal for routine testing and analysis. Already used in a wide array of industries, it requires almost no sample preparation and no solvents making it environmentally friendly. It satisfies ISO 10565 and is currently utilised around the world to analyse oilseeds such as sunflower, rapeseed (canola) and soy beans.
By watching this webinar, you will learn about the NMR technique, how it works and how it can be used to fine-tune your extraction process to maximise your oil yield.
