Talk on Fruit Maps

Felix Instruments at Washington Tree Fruit Meeting today

Felix Instruments- Applied Food Science  is at WSTFA (Washington State Tree Fruit Association Meeting) in Kennewick, Washington to talk about Fruit Maps: The world’s first free interactive harvest map

Chemical Physicist Ryan Lerud will be giving a presentation and talk about the F-750 and Fruit Maps on Wednesday at 9am in rooms E & F “ A Practical Decision Support System for Harvest Date Estimation.” 

Partnered with Kerry Walsh at Central Queensland University, Felix Instruments- Applied Food Science is announcing a 2018 availability of the FREE interactive harvest map for all F-750 Produce Quality Meter users. 

Featured in the September 25th edition of North American FreshPlaza Newsletter, Fruit Maps has exceeding potential to drastically reduce waste and increase profits of commercial growers. Those interested in Fruit Maps can find information on the app and beta testing opportunities at the Felix Instruments website. 

For those interested in a hands-on demonstration, Ryan Lerud and Chelsea Gaya are available at WSTFA Monday-Wednesday (Dec. 4-6). They have an  F-750 Produce Quality Meter available for trial along with a live demonstration of Fruit Maps. The F-750 Produce Quality Meter is an instrument that takes non-destructive measurements of internal qualities, like sugar and dry matter, in fruit using NIR (Near Infrared) spectroscopy. As featured in the Fall Edition of Mango Matters magazine, the F-750 Produce Quality Meter is a valuable tool with a  long and successful history as a non-destructive tool for determining mango maturity and optimizing harvest timing.
