Pixofarm webinar on Tuesday, February 8:

"Digital yield monitoring solution for apples extended to citrus and pears"

The long-term goal of international software company Pixofarm is to advance digitalization in fruit growing by means of sophisticated solution approaches. In the 30-60 minute, English-language webinar on Tuesday, February 8, the various possible applications of the Pixofarm app will be illustrated in relation to the digitization of fruit growing.

Specifically, it will be shown how to count fruit using a smartphone, thus saving time. In addition, the diameter of the fruit produced can be precisely determined with a smartphone and growth can be tracked. Thus, growers have accurate crop forecasts based on their own measurements and weather data.

Using the app, data from different fields and seasons can also be analyzed and compared. This data is used as needed to optimize the process accordingly in terms of logistics and packaging. There will be a Q&A session at the end of the webinar.
Target customers are farmers, fruit associations, fruit cooperatives and exporters

Expanding the user areas
The Pixofarm app is used to digitize manual processes such as measuring fruit and counting all fruit on trees. "Based on this, reliable forecasts for the total harvest volume and the expected size class distribution can be provided weeks before harvest. Using their smartphones, fruit growers take photos of their trees and fruits, which, through artificial intelligence-based technology, provide them with real-time information directly into the app and online dashboard,"  company spokesman Georg Karner explains.

Pixofarm has since expanded its digital yield monitoring solution from apples to citrus and pears. Karner says, "After great success and many customers, Pixofarm will help citrus and pear growers optimize their yield with the fruit counting and fruit size feature. For this season, pear and citrus growers and growers can beta test the sizing and counting features for free." With the expansion of user areas, the process is now being used in Southern Europe and Latin America, among other regions, the company adds.

Harvest Bin Scan
Further development of the process will continue to be a focus this year, as Pixofarm will soon release a harvest bin scan feature that will allow both fruit growers and fruit associations to quickly determine the size classes and number of fruit in each bin. "In addition, we are continuously working on research and development to release our fruit counting, sizing and forecasting algorithm for more fruits in the future," Karner said.
