High Moisture Grain

We are interested in systems which can measure the moisture of grain and seeds. Some have suggested that 3D microwave imaging can work for granular materials like ours, especially since we need to compensate for changes in both bulk density and particle density. However, we would consider any reasonable approach or technology, especially if it is already a plug-and-play system.
Suggestions and leads appreciated

Re: High Moisture Grain
Is this a bulk process application or on individual grains? If bulk process could radiation gauging technology be used? Radiation gauging is used in many process applications ie slurry...if the water content is too high the absorbtion is less if the granulate is high the absorbtion is greater. I believe these instruments can get very sensitive.

Kindest Regards
