4 Ways to Monitor
Grain Temperatures

High temperatures can cause deterioration of grain very quickly, so it is essential to monitor the crop to ensure the temperature is consistent throughout the store and grain quality is maintained. 

Monitoring grain temperatures enable store managers to make quick decisions on when and where to use crop ventilation fans and to keep records for crop assurance purposes. Used in conjunction with a Martin Lishman automatic fan controller, this can contribute to greater storage efficiency and significant energy cost savings.

But which monitoring method is best for you? 

Martin Lishman offers several solutions to monitor stored grain that cater for a range of budgets.

The MiniTemp Monitor is a easy to use hand held device for quickly measuring grain temperatures.

The AgroLog wireless temperature and moisture probe wirelessly transmits grain temperatures to the user.

3. AgroLog Wireless Moisture and Temperature Probe

The AgroLog Wireless Sensor probe is a set-and-forget solution. It accurately monitors temperature and even moisture content of stored crops. The probe sends temperature and moisture data via the cellular network to the cloud where they can be accessed on the AgroLog app on any internet enabled device.

Barn Owl Wireless enables store managers to wirelessly monitor grain temperatures from anywhere in the world.

4. Barn Owl Wireless

The ultimate monitoring solution. Wireless grain temperature probes transmit data to a web portal for analysis. To take the system to the next level, the ability to control and manage cooling fans remotely can be added. Barn Owl Wireless users can expect at least a 40% reduction on energy costs when cooling grain.
