Potato sorters used in fields today are inefficient, expensive to operate, and high maintenance. Many of these machines require several people to operate them, and weather conditions must be just right for optimal sorting. Additionally, the machines fail to adequately separate foreign objects from the harvest, which reduces the yield and increases storage costs. Growers then run the risk of rejection and return from the processing plant.
TOMRA’s Field Potato Sorter (FPS) overcomes all of these issues. The FPS is a sensor-based sorting machine for unwashed potatoes; it removes soil clods, stones, and foreign objects. The machine’s technology identifies and compares the physical characteristics of good product and foreign material, and sorts based on these patterns.
Whatever your role in the potato value chain—key decision-maker, chief executive officer, technical support specialist, or grower—after reading this white paper, you will understand how the FPS fulfills these requirements and why your organization will benefit from using it.
