Creating a Predictive Apple Quality Model with NIRS

Posted by: Scott Trimble
Feb. 2, 2022

The two most often-used fruit quality parameters are soluble solid content (SSC) and dry matter (DM). Unfortunately, conventional measurements are destructive, laborious, and time-consuming. So, near-infrared spectroscopy tools, which can take non-destructive quality measurements throughout the supply chain, are gaining ...
