The microstrip antenna is designed for the measurement of soil moisture content for agriculture applications. In this paper, the single and dual-band microstrip antennas are designed, simulated and fabricated. The simulated results are compared and analysed with measured results for both designed for different types of feeds. It is found that the simulated and measured results are similar and better. Therefore, the fabricated antennas can be used for the soil moisture content measurement for agriculture applications. The dual resonant frequency antennas results are better than the single band antenna, it covers wide band thus, and it can be applied for wide applications.
