The Delytics team’s crop quality expertise and ability to analyse complex data helped Citrus Australia identify the maturity measures for their recently adopted Australian Citrus Quality Standards. The new standards were introduced in 2014 to assist Australian citrus growers, packers, marketers and retailers deliver quality citrus that consumers will enjoy eating and want to repeat purchase. Before setting the standards, Citrus Australia had to first determine the maturity parameters for oranges and mandarins that would consistently meet consumer preferences for juiciness and taste.
Delytics has helped the globally recognised James Hutton Institute research organisation create a new breeding protocol to ensure the majority of their raspberries are liked by consumers.
Pre-cursors of the Delytics® Crop Quality Advisor have been commercially operated by Zespri and their key clearance laboratories and suppliers since 2007. These systems have helped Zespri predict the right harvest colour, taste and time for their Gold kiwifruit, extend the shelf life through post-harvest improvements.

In September 2011 Harvest Fresh Fruits Pty Ltd (previously trading as Oolloo Farm Management) adopted a precursor of the Delytics® Crop Quality Advisor to optimise the production of B74 mangoes, marketed under the Calypso® brand name in Australia. This system is providing ongoing benefits for Australian mangoes.
