Summary
Abstract: The Stored Grain Advisor (SGA) is a decision support system for the management
of insect pests of farm-stored wheat. SGA predicts the likelihood of insect
infestation, and recommends preventative and remedial action. It also provides
advice on how to sample and identify insect pests of stored wheat.

Computer models of insect population growth allow SGA to predict future insect
populations in the grain bin, as well as the breakdown of insecticides, the
effects of fumigation, and cooling the wheat with aeration. The ability of
Stored Grain Advisor to graphically show insect population trends makes it a
powerful educational tool.
