The potato harvest lasts around 6 weeks and our team at Agronico have been busy harvesting over 8,000 tonnes of seed and ware potatoes for distribution to our customers around Australia.
Potatoes are transported directly from the paddock to the factory and are identified then automatically weighed every box at the door.
Grading and boxing is then completed immediately to reduce damage to the potatoes. This machine, sorts the smaller potatoes from the larger ones.
We use a cloud based solution to track the process from planting to sale including agronomy, harvesting and transport.
Once boxed, the potatoes are transferred to the coolstore, where they will be constantly monitored and recorded for changes in temperature, humidity and carbon dioxide levels.
