Measure the dry matter, brix and ripeness of mangoes with the new Mango Quality Meter, featuring advanced technology.
Mango growers can now predict fruit quality and maturity with accuracy, even whilst the mango is still on the tree.
The Mango Quality Meter uses near infrared analysis to measure the dry matter in the mango. It sends light particles into the avocado and then measures interactance of the light with molecules in the fruit. By evaluating the dry matter, we are able to gauge the maturity of mangoes.
The measurement takes only 12 seconds and the fruit is not punctured with the process – saving product samples, that would have been damaged with previous technology.
Electronic measurements are as easy to take as pushing a button, the data can then be transferred to a computer for analysis and record keeping.
Fruit Maps is the free interactive harvest map application that has been created by the manufacturer in association with Central Queensland University.
