VIDEO: A 3D view of the grain inside your bin to help prevent spoilage

Inventors' Showcase entrant at Manitoba Ag Days showcased serious technology to help spot spoilage before it occurs

Have you ever been sitting at home wondering what’s going on with the moisture content inside your grain bin? Well, wonder no more. Using spectral imaging technology – similar to that of an MRI or CT scan – GrainViz creates a 3D moisture map of the grain inside your bin that you can view via your computer.

By attaching a series of antennae inside a grain bin in conjunction with an outdoor weather station, the GrainViz system aims to help you spot spoilage before it occurs. Braden Pierce, engineer with GrainViz, explains more in the video above.
