Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


To improve the logistics of filling storage rooms with fruit of homogeneous quality at harvest, there is an obvious need for early information related to fruit quality. Using a modelling approach prediction of fruit quality distribution at harvest has been studied. The presented model is based on the state-space model. Predicted data consistently describe well the observed packing-houses measurements for 3 different apple varieties for 2 years. The application possibilities of the presented approach are discussed.
