Can We Detect Fusarium In Wheat ?

Updated: Aug 14, 2020

Over the last few years, the reaction to our statements that we can detect Fusarium in Wheat using image analysis was very skeptical, and yes it was not personal but more of the agriculture ecosystem opinion on the Silicon Valley "FAKE IT UNTIL YOU MAKE IT" culture. and we got it,

Happy to share that nowadays, customers are using the Vibe QM3 Grain Analyzer with the "Fusarium Test Calibration" that we developed to test and detect Fusarium in Wheat, a sample of 25 grams takes less than 30 seconds. Most important, using digital inspection reduce the exposure of the people who do it manually. Typical time of manual inspection per sample ranges from 15 to 30 minutes, one inspector can do 40 samples a day with an error rate of about 10% to 20% where with Vibe you can do 400 samples with 99% accuracy on a sample level. We plan to deploy this solution on a much larger scale to ensure safer food for humans and animals feed.

Special thank you to the authors for mentioning the uses of Vibe in this paper.
