An excerpt from Determination of Dry Matter in Small Silage Samples, Journal of the University of Wales Agricultural Society, 78, 101-114 (1988)

INTRODUCTION AND METHODOLOGY

A previous paper (Faithfull, 1997) indicated that a suitable method for dry

matter determination in small silage cores had been developed; this paper

describes that method. …

…

Calculation

… the volume of aqueous distillate is reduced by the volume of acid. This is estimated

according to the formula …

Programmable calculator program

A program has been devised to allow easy calculation using a Hewlett-Packard

programmable calculator; this is shown in Figure 3.

To write the program into the calculator, activate program-entry mode and start

at the top by typing: …

…

To run the program, enter the variables and store them. The variables are as

follows:
