The objective of this study is to a) develop the methodologies needed to measure moisture content in Switchgrass using electrical resistance meters, b) determine the effects of pressure and probe orientation on moisture content measurement using electrical resistance meters, c) generate moisture content calibration equations for electrical resistance meters using Switchgrass in the senescence growth stage, and d) characterize other methods to measure moisture content of Switchgrass in the windrow.
