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.

ZENSIE updates: agriculture is collaborative, and we’re listening

We make this point often: we’re a tech company serving agriculture* test *(horitculture, floriculture, vertical farming, arable farming, processing, cold storage, transport, retail) Our product strategy is in many ways radically simple: make what customers tell us they want and need. This process never stops. If you’ve been with us for a bit, you may ...

This grower discovered irrigation issues with just 3 sensors

It may go against “sales logic,” but we usually advise customers to start with small deployments. test It’s not because we can’t handle large ones (one gateway can support around 4 thousand sensors– and if more are needed, it just takes another gateway) but because working with crop-level insights is a process. It becomes a ...

Want to know the power of a sensor? Look to the cloud.

Agritechnology doesn’t have to be difficult or complicated. We’ve built a business around this belief, and it’s not just for the sake of improving or ‘disrupting’ existing technology. Growers need technology to be simple and streamlined, because they’ve got more than enough on their plates, working to make sure we’ve got enough on ours. Still, ...
