Research Project: Development of Sensors for Instantaneous Assessment of Peanut Pod Moisture

Location: Peanut Research

Project Number: 6604-41430-003-08
Project Type: Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: May 01, 2010
End Date: Apr 30, 2015

Objective:
Develop and test, in different environmental conditions, sensors to rapidly and nondestructively determine the moisture content in peanuts.

Approach:
Sensors, suitable for use in laboratory conditions, will be developed and tested at NPRL. Sensors suitable for field and industry use, will be developed in Australia and tested at two different locations.
