    Abstract

    Invertebrate infestation of bulk storage grain can initiate spoilage processes detrimental to post-harvest quality. An anal. device capable of effective early detection of such infestation would be invaluable to the grain industry. Results from applying electronic nose technol. to detect invertebrate contaminants in grain are presented. Using a metal oxide semiconductor sensor array, detecting mite infestation in wheat grain was clearly visible at run-time, with 90-95% classification accuracy achieved with lab. test samples.
