Videometer technology is embraced by major members of the ISTA community
Videometer is focusing its efforts on improving and automating seed analysis with robust, state-of-the-art technology. As part of this process, Jens Michael Carstensen, our CEO, participated in ISTA Seed Symposium in Athens, Greece. The days, between the 2nd to the 4th of November 2022, were filled with keynote speakers, discussions, and presentations from the seed industry experts.
We were excited to see the VideometerLab being utilized in the daily operations of DLF. The company’s presentation – Introducing a new technology in the seed laboratory – illustrated how spectral imaging assists them in seed inspections with fast, reproducible, and reliable results.
Application of Multispectral Imaging technology to seed physical purity analysis was presented by BAYER, the company focused on two crops in their research – oilseed rape (OSR) and onion. With the VideometerLab they were able to achieve positive results, which led them to plan further analyses on other seeds to hopefully reach seed lot certification by the end of next year.
Furthermore, Baekdudaegan National Arboretum, together with Hankyong National University and Korea University, prepared a poster explaining their recent research paper – Seed Quality Assessment of Wild Plants. Here, the VideometerLab was used for seed measurement scanning.
The future of seed analysis is digital
The VideometerLab with Autofeeder enables automated seed analysis, including seed purity, damages, health, and germination. Digital twins of physical seeds represent a great advancement in analyzing and storing seed quality traits.
Videometer will continue the important discussions on the quality of seeds and their significance in sustainable agriculture. We are looking forward to continuing our journey to make Videometer Software and Hardware even more valuable for quality stakeholders in the seed community.
