Kuronga validates fresh produce quality with AI

At Kuronga we are using machine vision and deep learning to help farmers grade their produce so they can target the right quality to the right buyer.

Coordinated planting

Coordinated Planting

We work with farmers that demonstrate high quality standards to coordinate planting cycles between multiple farmers. This ensures stable scheduled delivery to market rather than the boom and bust cycles that typically characterise agricultural production.

AI On-Farm Grading

Farmers use our AI powered grading system to ensure the right quality is always delivered to the right buyer. Agricultural production always creates product variation. Our key insight Kuronga at is that there is a buyer for every grade of produce. Our AI helps farmers stratify their quality and target it to the appropriate market, maximising revenue, land use efficiency and reducing food waste.

Standardised Supply

By combining coordinated production cycles with our AI grading our growers deliver highly standardised supply collectively, controlling supply schedules, keeping them stable and predictable. Combined with our AI grading system grower collectives bring an unparalleled standardised quality to the marketplace.
