- For growers, the meter not only offers straight cost savings in manpower and destroyed fruit, but additionally, reduces guesswork and provides more data. Measuring more fruit, more often helps growers make better decisions at harvest.
- For breeders, NIR can help better determine how different applications of nutrients or herbicide affect fruit quality.
- For distributors, exporters and importers, NIR gives more visibility into the quality of the outgoing and incoming product, laying the groundwork for better decision making and cost savings.
The Kiwifruit Quality Meter also works seamlessly with Fruit Maps, the free interactive harvest map application co-created by Felix Instruments and Central Queensland University.
