Physical Characteristics of Some Vegetables Grown in Ahmedabad Region
AbstractPhysical dimensions, mass, shape and bulk density of vegetables grown around Ahmedabad have been determined. Measurements were carried out on samples at the farm immediately after harvest. Pattern underlying one of the characteristic dimensions has been identified. Statistical distribution that best described the pattern in all cases was found to be two parameter Weibull. Use of cluster analysis was illustrated in case of okra to determine the number of relatively homogenous groups into which the produce can be separated. Results may be useful to those working on unit technology and technology systems for fresh produce.
