Let’s talk growth.
See how POMETA can help you control crop load.
It takes brains to run an orchard. But no human brain can measure and memorize the position, size, and color of every fruitlet while zipping through the orchard on an ATV. Only POMETA can do that. It collects all of the data you’d get manually if you had the time – but 15x faster (and without the tedium).
When POMETA first scans your orchard, it notes the size of every fruitlet. Next time you scan, it remembers each fruitlet and measures them all again, using the size difference to track growth rate. Voila – a massive data set to help you choose a thinning or deficit irrigation strategy. No need to make large-scale projections based on a few caliper samples.
Using past and present local data from academia’s most trusted weather station, combined with a model of high risk areas in your orchard, POMETA can alert you of potential weather events via smartphone app.
With POMETA’s reliable smartphone-based frost alerts, you’re safe to get a little shut-eye on frosty nights – but if you want to stay up up all night anyway, we understand.
“I do want to tell you – your app is amazing. No joke, I’m not doing a sales speech right now. It does work great. Setting the actual alarms, getting the phone call and having to press one to say that I’m awake and got the alert, it works really nice. It is the way of the future.”
“It’s allowing us to be able to sleep – still can’t sleep all night, because you’ve trained yourself to get up every few hours and look at temps even though you haven’t had an alarm go off, but it’s also nice to know that when you’re dead tired, you can go to sleep and count on that alarm.”

POMETA’s orchard scan feature counts fruits on the the tree. What about after harvest? Wave your phone over a bin and POMETA will tell you the number of fruits, size distribution and color information for the entire bin – just like when they were on the tree. No manual math, samples, or trusting someone else’s numbers.
