Seed & Feed Samplers

Star Quality Seed and Feed Samplers feature sampling slot direction indicator, a solid tapered tip, open handle design for direct collection into sample bag and knurled handle for ease of operation. All probes are constructed of stainless steel with anodized aluminum handles.

Star seed samplers have been developed in consultation with, and are used by, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and the Departments of Agriculture in Louisiana and Ohio. Star seed samplers have been designed to meet International Seed Testing Association (ISTA) guidelines and recommendations.

NOBBE SEED SAMPLERS

Star Nobbe Seed Samplers have a single-slot opening for sampling bagged and bin seed. The sampler should reach to the middle of the bag and have a slot width 2 times the size of the seed being sampled.

All Star Nobbe samplers have a ‘comfort’ push handle, slot indicator, and a smooth tapered tip for no-tear bag entry and sample retrieval. Slot openings vary with the seed sampling requirements and come in 8, 11, 15, and 20mm widths. All samplers come with a plastic protective carrying sleeve.
