Who needs the DAmeter and why?
The DAmeter is a tool for growers, an innovative help to know when to harvest fruit such as apples, peaches, kiwis, pears, apricots and others. In fact it is capable of monitoring their ripening without destroying the product in order to choose the best moment to pick.
In the postharvest it can be used by the places for storing and packing to divide fruits in ripening classes or in other words in groups of homogeneous maturation level. This could be very useful in order not to waste food for a wrong estimate of storage duration and shelf life.
Besides DAmeter could be very useful for the retailer to decide which fruit should be sold before others basing his choice on a measurement of ripeness.
