Potato harvest insights tool expands into Australia


14 June 2023
New generation of agtech for Australian growers.

A NEW generation of agtech has landed for potato growers in Australia thanks to Elders and UK-based harvest insights system HarvestEye.

Growers can glean precise and detailed information about their produce in real time. Using a camera and machine learning algorithms, the system measures and counts a crop as it is being harvested. This produces a breakdown of size, count and relative yield through a field - a huge advantage in modern farming.

Unlike conventional sampling, HarvestEye has the capability to show the performance of the whole field.The data is captured and collated by a computer, which can even provide historic GPS tracking of a field over the years, allowing growers to make more informed decisions moving forward to improve efficiency, crop yield and uniformity.
