Description of the Challenge:
As a result of the lack of non-invasive methods, Grupo La Caña currently measures quality parameters (brix levels of their tomato production or the dry matter of their avocadoes) on a small sample of their production. Consequently, their client receives a heterogeneous product concerning quality.
The challenge is to search and validate ideas for a solution that:
Enables the agri-food company to work on a greater sample
Is less invasive than the rest of the available methods
Provides quality parameters in real time
Preferred outcome of the Solution:
The goal is to conduct a successful cooperation with IT companies to submit an interdisciplinary collaboration project.
