Learn about the technology used to determine whether the beetroot is ready for harvesting.

 

The beetroot that Hayden and his grower’s produce is used to make Wattie’s sliced, chunky, wedge, baby, diced and crinkle cut beetroot. Amazing new technology means that Hayden has the best tools on hand to help him determine whether the beetroot is ready for harvesting. Hayden monitors the size of the beetroot by measuring them every day and recording each measurement on his phone through bluetooth callipers. Another example of leading edge technology is the beetroot harvester. It pulls the beetroot out of the ground by the leaves, the dirt gets knocked off and the beetroot travels through the harvester to the transporting bins.
