Test the level of ripeness with a range of portable instruments which work out in the field, reporting back and helping to make harvest timing decisions as well as progress during transportation and storage. Using non destructive test and near infrared spectroscopy and indicators such as brix, acid and colour.
Ripening can be controlled through the presence of gases either adding or removing to preserve or speed up the process. Measurement and automatic control of ripening gases in storage and transportation of fresh produce, ensures the best possible product for consumer and retailer, reducing wastage, increasing profits and crucially, providing product consistency. EMCO offers solutions for small scale and large scale gas control and measurement.
Test, monitor and control RIPENING in the field, storage and transportation process.
