Technical Abstract: Findings of research over the past fifteen years on sensing moisture content in cereal grains by Radio-frequency (RF) and microwave measurements related to the dielectric properties of the grain are summarized. Results are described that provide the basis for reliable sensing of grain moisture content in single kernels of grain and in bulk grain samples, including techniques explored for sensing moisture content independent of bulk density fluctuation and which, therefore, have applicability to on-line moisture measurements necessary for moisture monitoring in flowing grain.
