  1. Detect the Lesser Grain Borer in Stored Grain Using an Application of a New Science and Technology Phase II

    SBC: SENSOR DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION            Topic: 813

    Grain production, storage, and processing are important industries. The LGB is a primary pest of cereal grains in the US and other parts of the world. It has been estimated that 5-10% of stored grain in developed countries and 35% of stored grain in developing countries is lost to insect damage. Estimates of the cost of grain loss due to insect, mold, and mycotoxin damage to the 15 billion bushels ...
