Hybrid corn seed production problems
Machine detasseling only results in around 85% pulling vs the needed 99.7% for hybrid corn seeds.
Any tassel not removed during the detasseling phase of hybrid seed corn production can result in unwanted pollination, degrading the necessary genetic purity and quality of seeds thus impacting their commercial market value.
Data Collection Approach:
Identification of missed tassels:
Avoid losing a field due to missed tassels
Get higher genetic purity of the hybrid corn seeds
Decrease cost of detasseling up to 1/3 with less labor hours
