Measurement of the Electrical Properties of Spelled Grains – T. Dicoccum
Krassimira Kardjilova, Yulian Rangelov, Zuzana Hlavacova

The aim of this work is to present the measurements of electrical properties on sample of spelled grains with glumes, of which had not been sufficiently measured. Electrical properties were measured with LCR meter. Resistance R, capacity C, relative permittivity r  of sample of spelled in different frequency intervals were measured. The results are presented graphically and analytically. Obtained results were analyzed. The measured values and results obtained allow to conclude that resistance, capacity and relative permittivity of spelled functionally dependent on the frequency, as obtained by other authors. The study was developed in response to the global trend to increase and control the quality of plant production and increased interest in the production and consumption of healthy and organic food (De Vita et al, 2006). Increased productivity of traditional crops requires hard work and guidance in improving product quality. This explains the increasing interest towards spelled - T. Dicoccum, which is a valuable source of vitamins, essential amino acids and minerals. Research on electrical properties of biological materials and the results can be used when constructing the apparatus for measuring moisture content based on electrical and dielectric properties of materials. Knowing the dependencies would allow to find the most optimal and accurate method for measuring moisture content in agricultural production.
