What is Stored Grain Advisor?
Stored Grain Advisor (SGA) is a decision support system for the managemement 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.
Version 3.04 runs under Microsoft Windows 98, 2000, XP, and 32 bit Vista.
Remove any previous versions of SGA using the uninstaller included with the program.
Download SgaSetup.exe to your computer.
Run SgaSetup.exe and follow the Installer's instructions.
SGA Pro was designed for use in commercial elevators as part of the Areawide IPM Project for stored grain. Grain samples are taken with a vacuum probe and processed over an inclined sieve. SGA Pro analyzes the insect data, grain temperatures and moistures, and determines which bins need to be fumigated. (NOTE: available but unsupported.)
This program runs under Microsoft Windows 98, 2000, XP, Vista, and Win7. Note: Win7 may require Windows Classic theme to display properly.
