The effective determination of apple fruit quality

Introduction of the Research conducted by the Laimburg Research Centre in collaboration with local and international institutes on non-destructive measurements to test the Quality and storage-ability of apples. These are identified through methods such as the near-infrared spectroscopy. In this context, the experts apply different procedures to identify the Quality of the Pulp (crunchiness, juiciness, firmness..): e.g. how the light of a specific wavelenght (colour) is blocked or more or less spread, which is in debendency on the state of the Pulp.
