The following issues are considered in the published article: features of measuring the humidity of agricultural materials; the role and place of metrological support in ensuring the uniformity of measurement in this area; the state of the scientific, regulatory, technical and organizational basis of metrological support in this area.
The article describes the regulatory framework and the basis for creating and operating in the Republic of Uzbekistan the State system for ensuring the uniformity of moisture measurements of agricultural materials, the economic significance of the humidity characteristics, which defines the priority tasks in the development of humidity control devices: the development of a single method and an exemplary installation for measuring humidity for cotton, cotton materials, grain and products of their industrial processing, providing verification and calibration of working moisture meters with an error of about 0.5%; recommendations for the development of sample preparation conditions and methods for transferring humidity units from the sample unit to working moisture meters with minimal loss of accuracy.
