The moisture of agricultural products is an important quality parameter for the harvest and storage capacity as well as an important measure for marketing.
In order to determine the exact moisture content of harvested crops a thermal water extraction must be carried out with a drying scale or a drying oven,. This method takes in practice too long.
Faster measurements provide the AGRETO Moisture meters that measure either the conductivity or electrical capacitance of the sample. One or more calibrations are converted to the moisture. The Agreto moisture meters thus provide accurate results within seconds.
