Precision Horticulture considering

- Physical properties of fresh fruit

- In-situ analysis of fruits from subtropics and temperate climate by means of spectral-optical analysis (multispectral LiDAR, multi- and hyperspectral methods, time-resolved laser-induced fluorescence spectroscopy, laser-induced backscattering imaging)

- Applications of in-situ analysis in agronomic models (estimation of fruit bearing capacity for controlling fruit quality at harvest, modelling the influence of preharvest environmental factors on postharvest quality)
