Cereals 2014: Grain probe warns if things are warming up

Leicestershire farmer Michael Summers reckons he’s sold several hundred of his clever Grainsafe grain temperature probes over the two years that he’s been making them.

He’s now added a useful extra module that lets you see theactual temperature of the grain as well as a graphic that shows whether the tendency of the grain is to increase in temperature or to drop.

That means you can see if there’s a problem right at the start when it’s relatively easy to do something about it.

In fact, the probe takes a reading every five seconds so there’s no danger of overlooking things. The units can be moved around easily and they go for about six months between chargings.

For £155 you can buy a 2m probe and standard LED readout. To get the LCD module, the cost is £215.
