A light-transmittance technique for determining tomato ripening rate and quality

, : A light-transmittance technique for determining tomato ripening rate and quality. Acta Horticulturae (38): 193-215

A light transmission difference meter for the identification of stages of ripeness in tomatoes was evaluated for 6 years, using an electronic 4-filter photometer and specific wavelength pairs.
