Provar is a small and fast-growing business, based in the beautiful Paarl region, developing web and mobile applications with the goal of optimising & automating the process of quantifying and rating crop and fruit characteristics of newly bred and commercially produced fruit cultivars. Our software products are web (Angular, Laravel, MySQL) and mobile (Native Android, React Native) based. Mobile applications, with offline capability, are being developed to ease the process of collecting plant and harvest sample data in the field and in the laboratory. Web applications process the collected data along with data from sensors and laboratory equipment to provide real-time reports, enabling sound decision making and thereby minimising the risk of planting commercially non-viable cultivars.
