Felix F-751 Non-Destructive Kiwifruit Quality Meter Now Available!

As the official distributor for Felix in New Zealand it was our pleasure and privilege to attend the official market introduction of the Felix F-751 Kiwifruit Quality meter during the Zespri Momentum 2020 conference.

The exciting F-751 (non-destructive) Kiwifruit Quality Meter, which is a development of the original F-750 Produce Quality Meter, is now available for order via Matt Solutions. The F-751 precisely and non-destructively measures dry matter, and brix to deliver an indication of quality and ripeness using NIR (near infrared) technology.

The battery powered, handhold instrument is designed to work accurately straight out of the box with just a simple push of the button and without destroying any fruit in the process, allowing savings in time, product and money

  • For growers, the meter not only offers straight cost savings in manpower and destroyed fruit, but also reduces guesswork and provides more data. Measuring more fruit, more often and faster delivers growers the information to make better decisions at harvest.
  • For breeders, NIR can help better determine how different applications of nutrients or herbicide impact fruit quality.
  • For distributors, exporters and importers, NIR gives more visibility into the quality of the outgoing and incoming product, laying the groundwork for better decision making and cost savings.

The Felix F-751 Kiwifruit Quality Meter also works seamlessly with Fruit Maps, the free interactive harvest map application co-created by Felix Instruments and Central Queensland University.
