While farmers are accustomed to monitoring stored grain by moisture and temperature, monitoring the amount of carbon dioxide produced by the grain might be a better way to keep tabs on it.
Paul Armstrong, a researcher with the USDA's Agricultural Research Service in Manhattan, Kan., is studying the monitoring of carbon dioxide in stored grain.
Armstrong says monitoring CO2 levels might provide more accurate results to detect if mold is growing.
Temperature and moisture sensors might not take into account the grain history that might make it likely to have active mold growth, he notes.
