An artificial neural network (ANN) was used to determine the moisture content of hard, red winter wheat. The ANN was trained to recognize moisture content in the range from 10.6% to 19.2% (wet basis) from transmission coefficient measurements on samples of wheat. The measurements were made at 8 microwave frequencies (10 GHz to 18 GHz) on wheat samples of varying bulk densities (0.72 g/cm3 to 0.88 g/cm3) at 24°C. The trained network predicted moisture content (%) with a mean absolute error of 0.135 (compared with oven-dried measurements)
