Omnia Fruit Vision is a new service that accurately counts and grades apples while on the tree. This revolutionary system uses a specialist optical sensing system mounted on a quad bike that takes 20 images per second as it passes through the orchard at about 6km/hour. The system has an accuracy of up to 95% and once the information has been collected, it is then downloaded and analysed by the Omnia software system. All of this results in the first ever automated system for mapping marketable yields down to a tree level.
A range of services are available to meet the differing needs growers. To find out more about these services, please speak to your Hutchinsons agronomist, complete the online enquiry form, or contact Rob Saunders on 07879 694520
