Martin Lishman Ltd has over 40 years’ experience of designing and producing crop storage and quality control products that reduce post-harvest losses, increase quality and save time and money. We have developed many agri-tech solutions to help solve these key issues, but at the forefront has been the need for solutions that are practical, low-cost and that will improve the user’s business.
Our modular crop ventilation system combines vertical ducts, known as Pile-Dry Pedestals, high efficiency fans and Barn Owl Wireless cloud-based remote monitoring and automatic fan control. Crops are cooled quickly and economically, while avoiding costly rejections due to high temperatures or insects.
Our potato quality control range includes the TuberLog electronic potato which identifies damage and bruising sources. Bruising levels are assessed with our Potato Hot Box. Dry matter, sugar levels, size measurement and temperature monitoring, are all aspects of our range.
Our latest innovation – ImpacTrack – is a temperature and impact logger that monitors and records damage to delicate produce such as avocados and apples. Using 3D printing technology, we can encase the logger in virtually any food shape. Users track the logger through the entire post-harvest supply chain, leading to less waste and higher production yields.
