Abstract: Farmers, processors and manufacturers of potato-handling equipment have a strong need for fast support systems to analyse and to evaluate the bruising risk while handling potatoes. The abundance of influencing factors, their interactions and the complex relationships between mechanical impacts and the resulting tissue discolouration, however, hamper an easy solution. The main objectives of this work were the introduction and construction of a frame of reference for the PTR 200 electronic potato and the development of a predictive tissue discolouration model taking into account both impact energy level and a reduced number of potato bruise susceptibility parameters. The attention was mainly focussed on dry matter content and tuber temperature as influencing factors because of their fast determination possibilities, which is essential for an online evaluation and support system.
