    Accuracy of Peanut Moisture Determinations by Using the Official AOCS Method¹

Abstract

A collaborative study was conducted using Spanish peanuts at Oklahoma State University and Virginia peanuts at North Carolina State University regarding the variability in moisture determination using the official AOCS method. The variability among 30 samples was estimated at 5 moisture levels for each of the two peanut types. No difference could be detected between the two types and the data were combined. The standard deviation was linearly related to the mean moisture. Data provided information necessary to compute the number of samples required for a desired precision.
