This work is carried out to develop a system to maintain silos in a safe and hygienic environment to store food grains by monitoring them at regular intervals. We keep track of the parameters in the silo such as temperature, humidity, and carbon-di-oxide level concentrations. Values recorded at regular intervals of time help us analyze and visualize the data and observe the effects of these parameters on the food grains stored, while providing protection against pests, rodents and other organisms that can affect the yield. It has also been observed that while the grains are stored in such silos, due to the natural processes we have a lot of carbon-di-oxide concentration in the silos which has caused many fatal deaths of farmers. This issue has been mitigated in this work by implementing an emergency procedure which will be activated to open the grain bin and release the toxic gases from the silo. Through this work, we believe we can innovate in the grain storage space and solve the problems faced by the farmers.
