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, quality of seeds thus impacting its 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 maize seeds
Decrease cost of detasseling up to 1/3 with less labor hours
