Plant Samples

Pre-harvest evaluation data

  • Identify your plant sample in the field with a QR-code.
  • Characterise plant phenology, growth, architecture, flowering, fruit set and presence of pests, diseases and disorders.
  • Measure plant dimensions, trunk circumference and total yield.
  • Add photos and notes to your evaluation.

Harvest Samples

Post-harvest evaluation data

  • Identify your harvest sample in the laboratory/storage with a QR-code.
  • Characterise harvest ripening, internal and external appearance, storage diseases and disorders.
  • Measure dimensions, weight, TSS, acidity and firmness.
  • Add photos and notes to your evaluation.

"The goal is to turn data into information, and information into insight."

Standarised Evaluation

Standardise your evaluation procedures and practises with Provar's industry leading evaluation protocols to ensure accurate and comparable data across evaluation sites and countries.

Protocols define which characteristics and measurements are relevant to the specific sample type, crop type and purpose of evaluation. Every procedure, recordable-characteristic and -measurement is documented in the Provar Evaluation Manual.

Harvest evaluation is performed to characterise new cultivars and selections on the base of their fruit traits. Visual and sensory fruit evaluation are applied to describe fruit quality and keeping ability after storage over a specified storage period. Characteristics such as colour and pattern, shapes and symmetry, defects and disorders and eating quality are evaluated in detail.

  • Characterise: Ripening, Appearance, Shapes and Symmetry, Abrasions and Blemishes, Eating Quality, Storage Diseases and Disorders, Overall Score and Indexing
  • Measure: Fruit Length, Fruit Weight, Fruit Diameter, Fruit Firmness, Fruit TSS, Fruit Acidity (Malic), Fruit Starch

Tree Evaluation is performed to characterise the adaptability of cultivars and selections on the base of a full set of tree characteristics and includes all phenological stages. Characteristics such as growth and architecture, flowering and fruit set, pests and diseases and general adaptability are evaluated in detail.

  • Characterise: Tree Phenology, Growth & Architecture, Flowering, Fruit Set, Pests, Disease & Disorder, Adaptability
  • Measure: Trunk Circumference, Total Yield, Estimated Yield, Number of Fruit, Tree Height, Tree Width, Tree Depth, Flower Density

Observational Fruit evaluation is performed to characterise new cultivars and selections on the base of a sample set of their fruit traits and includes characteristics such as colour and pattern, shapes and symmetry, defects and disorders and eating quality that are scored for brief reference.
