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