Update on an Automated In-Field Cotton Lint Moisture Measurement System

Richard K. Byler and W. Stanley Anthony


Prototypes of two devices to measure the moisture content of cotton in the field were built and data were collected with them. The first device was attached to the chute of the cotton harvester and measured samples while the machine was in use. The second device was attached to the tramper foot of a module builder and collected data while the module was being formed. Both devices show promise in assisting in the management of harvesting and scheduling modules for ginning based on moisture content concerns.
