Summary  

This research has demonstrated that the dielectric method can be used successfully for grain moisture measurements for diverse grain types over wide ranges of temperatures if the grain moisture content is below certain (grain-specific) threshold values. These high-moisture limits were estimated. Optimum temperature correction coefficients for 149 MHz moisture measurements were determined for grain samples at different moisture levels. This information should be very helpful for grain moisture meter manufacturers and for moisture meter users who need to determine grain moisture contents at temperature extremes to be able to market grain more efficiently.
