CROVER: The world’s first bulk grain-monitoring robot

March 7 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Crover and Agri-EPI are hosting an event taking place on 7th March from 10 to 11AM , “The world’s first bulk grain-monitoring robot”.

The CROVER is an innovative new grain ‘swimming’ robot, set to drastically reduce post-harvest grain loss from moisture, pests and mould.

The monitoring of stored grain is notoriously difficult and currently contributes to postharvest global losses of around 20%. Over and above the financial impact on cereal storage sites, farms, grain merchants, millers and breweries, it is estimated that 4.5 billion people are exposed to dangerous mycotoxins from grain moulds every year; moulds that contaminate 25% of the world’s food supply.

The increasing global demand for grain is also under pressure from unpredictable harvests due to climate change, which is partly driven by cereal storage loss. Today, an estimated 6% of global food waste greenhouse gas emissions are due to inefficient grain storage.

Join us for this online event to see the CROVER in action and discuss further solutions to grain loss.

We look forward to seeing you there!
