NIRS Forage and Feed Testing Consortium
We are an association of commercial laboratories, universities, government groups, plant research entities, and instrument companies. We work together to promote NIRS accuracy through uniformity, standardization, and good practices. Our consortium collaborates together to unify knowledge, accuracy, and application of NIRS technology. Laboratories share in efforts and costs to produce standardized calibrations for use. We also carry out programs to help and support our members in use of calibrations and instrumentation.
We are a consortium supporting proficiency in analytical capabilities. We provide a structure for members to contribute their individual resources to generate unmatched analytical capabilities that produce defensible, reliable, and repeatable results. We will promote an open forum to discover member needs, provide effective innovative solutions, and to seek out and understand new knowledge and technology and use it to further our mission when justified.
