Caption: Checking wheat for pests. This device, manufactured by Systelia Technologies, detects weevils and other insects and larvae in stored wheat. Acoustic sensors locate pests, and X-rays identify the types of insects and their stage of maturity. This technology offers early warning of an infestation. Previously, grain had to be sifted by hand to detect pests.
