Hort Innovation Partner Project : Fruitronics
Fruitronics - The harvester is part of an integrated system which will ensure farmers know exactly how many fruit are on their trees, when they will be in perfect condition for the consumer, and when to employ the right number of people for picking and packing. The end goal is to save costs and improve productivity on farm, while driving consumer demand by ensuring a top-quality eating experience every time.
