Incotec launched its latest innovative tomato seed upgrading product, X-ray next at the trade fair Seed meets Technology in Zwaagdijk, The Netherlands in September. By applying state-of-the art technologies including deep learning, Incotec has further advanced the company’s high-tech X-ray upgrading technology for maximizing the germination potential of a seed lot.
Incotec first introduced seed upgrading using X-ray technology in 2007. Through digital analysis of a seed embryo image, top-quality seeds are selected. Since then the wealth of data accumulated makes the use of deep learning techniques possible. Deep learning is a type of artificial intelligence
Bruno Hoeltgebaum, Sales Manager: “Our aim is to get the best seeds from any seed lot, generating a higher quality seed lot, increasing yield for the growers. Our customers, seed companies, will have an even more effective result, with less seeds discarded, leaving a larger number of seeds in the top range segments and delivering maximal yield. With X-ray neXt, seed selection has never been more efficient.”
