Cut bruising by 50%.

Reduce crop damage by up to 50%
on the first use. (Now that’s a smart potato.)

Bruised and damaged potatoes don’t have to be a given. Reduce waste by minimizing bruising, shatter damage and black spots with the addition of SmartSpud™ from harvesting to the processing line. Measure the damage caused by impact your potatoes are receiving during processing to pinpoint and fix root causes. 

How the process works

SmartSpud™ is not just another potato on the line. Cut bruising and damage rates by at least 10% with reported returns as high as 50% on the first use. The wireless sensor solution provides a real-time measure of impact, as well as the location and severity of the damage, displayed on your system's tablet. Take immediate corrective action to prevent bruising.

Harvesting
Harvesting

From soil conditions to harvester operations to truck transportation, finding the root cause is the first step to bruise management.

Handling
Handling

From eggs to delicate produce, mechanical processes cause costly damage that can be avoided by measuring, locating and isolating the source.

Storage
Storage

Storage is a vulnerable stage during the product lifecycle. Prevent spoilage by eliminating bruising before it becomes catastrophic.
