In our fully equipped Post harvest testing laboratory we have  Fruit Texture Analysers,Three Gas Analyzers that  measures levels of Ethylene, CO2 and O2 to maintain optimal produce quality, ICA  56 Ethylene monitors,, Shore metres, dehydrators and refractometers The traditional method of measuring starch degradation as an indication of maturity has served us well over the years but modern technology has enable us to take a giant leap forward.
