The web-page PerFrutto.com processes data collected in the field (fruit size) using Calibit, the digital caliper with datalogger onboard.
Proprietary algorithms were created for the main varieties of apple and pear. Perfrutto provides forecasting information allowing growers to optimize irrigation, fruit thinning and fertilization. Our goal is the success of the growers making them able to produce the best possible fruit quantity and sizes. PerFrutto maximizes crop yield (+10% = +2K€/ha) and optimizes the production. Fruit can be used as natural active drivers for irrigation management. Early information about fruit production (size and quantity) is fundamental and strategical for commercial staff.


HK Horticultural Knowledge

HK Horticultural Knowledge ltd was formed in 2011 by a group of ecophysiologists that work or have spent several post-doc years at the University of Bologna. Most of us are under 35 years old.
Although quite different for interests and research expertises, we share a very strong passion for research in horticulture. The work carried out within the university programs provides us with strong skills in the planning and execution of research projects and in the analysis of the data. Our long-term objective is to bring innovation developed in the lab to the orchard, as much as possible! We believe this is a time when great improvements in sustainability of fruit production systems can be matched with
sustained production of top quality fruit. To make this happen is our goal.
