Description

The Chlorophyll Fluorescence Hand Sensor is developed to measure the photosynthesis activity of plants and can be viewed as a speed gauge. If parameters in a greenhouse change, this has an effect on the photosynthesis activity of a plant. Furthermore the Chlorophyll Sensor can be used to determine the ripeness stage of fruits. Currently, growers visually judge the ripeness stage of fruits however, at some ripeness stages it is difficult to observer if certain compounds are still present in the fruit or if they have been converted in something else. The Chlorophyll sensors is a strong tool for growers to gain insights in the ripeness of the fruits.

Benefits
The advantage of the sensor is that it can help warehouses to determine the quality of fruits by determining the ripeness stage of fruits. Furthermore, the sensor can monitor photosynthesis activity and assist growers to actively optimize  the greenhouse parameters (e.g. CO2, T, pH, O2, Water content). The sensor can be utilized by attaching the optical probe to a leaf with a leaf clip. Moreover, the sensor can be utilized by measuring the Chlorophyll Fluorescence of a fruit and comparing the measurement with a reference value. To achieve the latter a calibration protocol is necessary.
