Date: Nov 14, 2017

During the November 28 Tech Talk, Food-Origins CEO and Co-Founder Nathan Dorn will demonstrate new technology that provides information regarding the progress of the harvest, the density of the production in the field and the velocity of the harvest.

Food-Origins offers solutions that will significantly improve the efficiency of the $20 billion hand-harvested fruit industry with the single click of a precision data collection system. The company provides unique packaging labels that can be scanned in the field using a low-cost handheld device. The data from these scanned labels is collected in real time and can be used by farmers, marketers, retailers and consumers to provide comprehensive insights into productivity and quality.

During the Tech Talk, Dorn will explain how Food-Origins precision harvest data benefits the three main components of farm decision-making:

  • Obtaining relevant data
  • Acquiring insight through analysis
  • Enabling efficient management

For more information on how Food-Origins can benefit growers, attend the Tech Talk on November 28 and watch the video below where Dorn shares how Food-Origins helped a berry grower realize he could pick faster and more cost-efficiently using a machine rather than simply hand picking:
