Throughout the production chain, crops, animal feedstuffs and produce are driven to meet quality standards, and to match up to trade and consumer expectations.

Mecmesin is a leading manufacturer of tensile and compressive force testing equipment with over 40 years’ dedicated experience in the field.

Characteristics such as the root strength of crops and soil structure directly affect the quality of foodstuffs and can often be turned into objective data by mechanical strength testing with a force or torque tester.

The yield from livestock is directly affected by the quality of animal feeds, which are often delivered in individual pellet form, and can be evaluated for their physical properties by compressive hardness testing. Granular pills and tablets used in fertilizers are also tested for compressive hardness using 'bulk-analysis' methods.
