Short summary
In order to store grain in large warehouses, a process is required that will prevent the effects of mildew and heat. Real-time monitoring of the grain status is needed. Using the information obtained from the monitoring system, corresponding measures were taken for the heating and mildew points in the grain pile. We proposed a drill which is a granary grain condition detector. It can be equipped with temperature, CO2, and humidity sensors and gather information by entering the grain pile.
