ILVO performs underwater weighing of fruit and vegetables for farmers as well as organisations or companies. The underwater weight measurement is especially used as an indicator for the susceptibility of a commodity to mechanical damage at harvest and post-harvest, e.g. during handling.
The underwater weight is an indicator of the product's quality. The importance of this parameter depends on potential further processing steps. The susceptibility to damage can be translated into proper advice concerning harvesting practices and postharvest handling.
