Fruitconsult and NSure intensify co-operation

In 2007 NSure introduced an entirely new type of assay, with which pear producers can accurately monitor the ripening of Conference pears. This RipeNsure test determines ripening stage of pears  for each lot separately and is highly useful for harvest planning – which lot should be harvested first? On the basis of two measurements, taken with a week time interval, NSure is able to predict the optimal harvest moment for long time storage as well. The prediction can be made as long as 4 to 6 weeks in advance.

In the past season it became clear that some of our customers would prefer a detailed advice, taking into account specific details with respect to culture techniques such as cutting of roots and additional irrigation. Being the largest fruit production consultancy firm in the Netherlands Fruitconsult is the most appropriate company to provide this specific advice. Therefore, NSure and Fruitconsult decided to bring a combined product to the market: RipeNSure Expert. This is a complete package including two RipeNSure analyses and a customized harvest time advice by Fruitconsult. In addition the producers who order such a package will receive a number of newsletters summarizing the main issues regarding interpreatation fo the optimal harvest time.

 The cooperation between Fruitconsult and NSure is not novel. In 2006 both companies worked together in the large scale practical trials that proceeded the market introduction of RipeNSure in 2007.
