An automated near–infrared (NIR) reflectance system was used over a two–month storage period to detect single wheat kernels that contained live or dead internal rice weevils at various stages of growth. Correct classification of sound kernels plus kernels containing live pupae, large larvae, medium–sized larvae, and small larvae averaged 94%, 93%, 84%, and… CONTINUE READING
