Traceability + Crop-level monitoring= less waste, better product

July 23, 2018

So, you’ve grown perfect crops. You’ve optimised irrigation, prevented sunscald, averted disease risk, and saved money with an IPM strategy that’s tailored to your growing conditions. The last thing you need is your (and mother nature’s) market-ready, sustainable product to be a casualty of bad storage or transport conditions.

It doesn’t need to be.

Consus Fresh is a field to shelf quality control and traceability product for agriculture. Seamless integration with 30MHz via our API enables agribusinesses to leverage the power of crop-level monitoring, providing a temperature history for batches of produce, with periods of “temperature abuse” alerted for shelf life analysis and supply chain optimisation, and loss prevention.

Shelf life prediction with 30MHz and Consus Fresh

The 30MHz – Consus integration makes it easy to predict the shelf life of produce, and use that insight to prevent product waste. A newly released update to the Consus shelf life module enables customers to predict the date when a product will expire using insight on the temperature history of pallets (captured in real-time with 30MHz tech).

Here’s how it works: as soon as the operative enters a pallet number (in an area which is being monitored with 30MHz technology),  the user will be given the predictive date of failure, which is viewable in the Consus Fresh interface. This gives the grower/packer critical information to react in time, adjusting conditions, which in turn results in less waste, lower rejections and more profitability.
