Alberto De Marcos and his team at Semillas Fitó are exploring the use of NIRS to breed better varieties of seven solanaceae (nightshade) and cucurbit (gourd) crops: tomato, pepper, eggplant, melon, watermelon, zucchini, and cucumber.

Application Scientist Galen George sits down with Alberto to chat about his plans to integrate the F-750 Produce Quality Meter to improve in-house testing with data-driven insights.
