F-751-Avo

Avocado Quality Meter


Based on the original F-750 Produce Quality Meter, is specifically engineered to gauge the maturity of avocados via dry-matter assessment. The instrument is designed to accurately predict percent dry matter straight out of the box with just a simple push of the button. Utilizing a wi-fi connection, the data collected using the F-751 Avocado Quality Meter can be seamlessly transferred to a computer for easy analysis and data sharing.

Benefits of the Avocado Quality Meter include a more in-depth avocado model for measuring dry matter, as well as a significantly smaller price tag than the F-750 Produce Quality Meter.

The Avocado Quality Meter also comes with the ability to use Fruit Maps, the free interactive harvest map application co-created by Felix Instruments and Central Queensland University.
