Stored Grain Advisor Pro expert system
SGA Pro was designed for use in commercial elevators (concrete silos, etc).

This system takes a sampling based approach to managing insect pests. Grain samples are taken with a vacuum probe, and processed over an inclined sieve. SGA Pro analyzes the insect data, grain temperatures and moistures, and determines which bins need to be fumigated.

This software was developed for the Areawide IPM Project
