Felix Instruments, a pioneering technology company, is pleased to announce the rescheduled Kiwifruit Tech Talk Breakfast event will be held on April 12th, 2023 after its postponement due to Cyclone Gabrielle. This event, hosted in tandem with Start Afresh – The Horticultural Innovators, will bring together industry personnel from the kiwifruit sector to explore the F-751 Kiwifruit Quality Meter, which uses NIR technology to enable non-destructive and rapid maturity testing.
The F-751 Kiwifruit Quality Meter provides growers and packers with an accurate and efficient tool for assessing the Brix content of kiwifruits. Doing so improves the overall quality of the fruit and optimizes the assessment of crop maturity and fruit loads.
