Subject: 0.8%?

If the weight only went down 0.8% per point they only reduced the moisture 68% of what they claimed because the theoretical weight of moisture removed is 1.176% per point of moisture reduction. Any less and there's still moisture present, probably full moisture in the center of the kernels and dry on the outside so the on farm moisture meter sees it dry, but the moisture tester at the elevator that dries it until it stops loosing weight will find all that moisture and they get to pay for it at the elevator if it didn't lead to mold as it evened out in the kernel after drying. A sign of rapid drying at high heat not giving the moisture time to migrate from the core of the kernel. A disaster in the making.
