GIPSA's Federal Grain Inspection Service provides inspection services on grains, pulses, oilseeds, and processed and graded commodities. These services facilitate the efficient and effective marketing of U.S. grain and other commodities from farmers to domestic and international end users.
Inspection services are divided into two basic types: "inspection for grade" or "factor analysis" without grade. Inspection for grade involves analyzing the sample according to the quality factors listed in the Official U.S. Standards for Grain and certifying the applicable numeric grad designation, the quality factors responsible for the grade assignment, and any other quality factors the customer requests.
Eastern Iowa Grain Inspection employees several licensed grain inspectors, who have passed written and oral testing administered by the Federal Grain Inspection Service. If you would like official services performed, please contact one of our offices to be placed on the schedule.
