Crop Consultancy

BASIS qualified Professional register staff are here to advice on many aspects of crop husbandry and crop protection product choice, we undertake trials to research new chemistry and offer a practical assessment of their capabilities. We are currently investigating non destructive methods of predicting fruit maturity and harvest dates for long term storage. This method using chlorophyl fluroscence can predict the point where starch is converted to sugars between 7 and 10 days before it actually happens. This study has been carried out over a number of years and and can repeated year after year irrespective of seasonal changes

Research and Development

Harvesting at the correct time of maturity is critical to avoid developing internal problems during long term storage. However perfect harvest timing is not always possible and NSure has developed an accurate prediction method on which you can start basing your storage and sales decisions.

With a choice of pear stores it is important make sure you put the right product in the market at the right time. NSure helps maximise this decision making process to ensure consistent high quality for the consumer

Many Dutch growers have already used the measurements of NSure to test their Conference pears. Before closing their cold stores, these growers knew which of their pears were likely to develop internal browning / cavity or loose firmness during long term storage.
Armed with is critical information they were able to sell the high risk batches first and leave the low risk batches for later in the season.
