Control in applied Physiology

"Farming with sensors is so much easier."

Sensors for fruit analysis in the context of precision horticulture:

What does Precision Horticulture capture?

- It is a concept recently developed in research capturing data collection in the orchard (apple, banana, mango, citrus fruits) or greenhouse (tomato), quality mapping, and decision support.

In-situ data of the fruit can be used in the production and postharvest in the entire supply chain of fresh produce.

 


What is the expected impact on horticulture?

- Fruit sensors use modern information and communication technology (ICT) for collecting online in-situ data on the fruit development and visualize the crop.

- The fruit information provide an insight in the apparent fruit development aiding maturity monitoring for irrigation, marketing, harvest, and storage decisions. 

- For exmple: search for the FIORAMA project of CP.
