An insect detection probe was recently developed to detect and identify the sounds of different stages and species of primary grain pest insects whilst operating directly from the surface of grain bulk. A laboratory acoustic device with the same technology as the probe was also developed for hidden insect detection in grain samples. A campaign for the testing of the performances of the acoustic probe and the laboratory acoustic device in field conditions was undertaken by the ONIGC in the… CONTINUE READING
