Lindcove REC hosted a citrus tasting event and tour of the facility in mid-December. Included in the tour was the Compac and Taste Tech fruit grading system on the packline, which allows a large amount of citrus to be graded and evaluated quickly and very accurately. This is very important for researchers, who want to know how the treatments applied in the field studies have affected fruit number and fruit quality.
Compac and Taste Tec have been providing technical support to Lindcove and working with Lindcove researchers and staff to make improvements in the software modeling. This kind of collaboration is typical of the kinds of partnerships that can flourish at the Research and Extension Centers to help improve our food and how it is delivered.
