I also cannot recommend the miniGAC plus. A 13.0% sample reading on my tester shows 12.4% at the elevator. A 15.5% sample reading on my tester shows 16.0% at the elevator. So I can't calibrate it with the elevator because it goes from a negative bias to a positive bias.
Because almost everyone says they are so accurate I assumed I had a bad tester. So I went and purchased another new one for $550 and to my surprise and dismay it gave the same inaccurate readings I got with the one I already had.
I would appreciate it if someone would try running some samples in the 12.0% to 16.0% moisture range on corn with the miniGAC and see if you get similar results that I do. Thank you.
