Grain Respiration Detection

Solvita technology measures grain fungal spoilage in early stages before visible moulding potential for spoilage. Recent research shows that the CO2 released from incubated grain may be used to accurately predict remaining storage life. The Solvita┬« procedure combines these findings with modern technology in a reliable, simple-to-use process which can be performed fairly rapidly and at reduced cost as compared to traditional lab respirometric procedures.

New Application of CO2-respiration test:

  • Reduce likelihood of harmful spoilage of grain
  • Predict storage life remaining at current conditions
  • Evaluate quality of on-farm grain storage
  • No extra lab equipment required
