Technical Abstract: Permittivity-based calibration functions for microwave moisture content determination in granular materials independent of density are a suitable solution for design and implementation of cost-effective on-line sensing devices. Two of these functions are tested for corn and wheat at a microwave frequency of 11.3 Ghz and 24 degrees Celsius.
