Abstract [en]

Analysing the moisture in stored products like harvested cereal grains and their products, peas, beans, oil-seeds, copra, cocoa beans, spices etc. is very much important to avoid the fungi growth. Moisture can be present in grain in more than one state, i.e. as bound, adsorbed or absorbed water. A designed, integrated circuit was interfaced with personal computer to measure the capacitance which in turn help to calculate the moisture content of rice. The interfaced circuit was tested by measuring the capacitance of different ceramic capacitor. This technique is fast, reliable, accurate and gives hundred set of readings in few seconds. Moisture contents are measured in percentage. The error correction was done with the help of mat - lab programming.
