Martin Lishman Crop Temperature Measurement
Crop temperature monitoring gives early warning of possible quality problems with your grain and gives you the time to take action before the situation gets worse.
Changes in temperature are the best indicator of grain quality, so temperature monitoring is essential.
Safe long-term storage requires regular crop monitoring and control of crop temperature. Ideally, crop temperatures should reach 5o°C to reduce the viability of disease, insects and moulds.
Measuring crop temperature shows if the cooling system is effective and gives early warning of problems – a rise in temperature can indicate insect activity.
