Used on all kinds of horticulture—from wine grapes to tree fruits and nuts, vegetables and flowers—Tow and Blow machines continue to be refined, now with the following improvements:
The Navik program by Absolutdata automates the market research and concept testing processes to make launching a new product or packaging design quicker and easier. The “cloud-based, decision support tool” is designed to help companies set market test parameters such as demographics and key performance indicators (KPIs) to gauge if a project is a “go” or “no go.” absolutdata.com
ADAMA received EPA approval for its Captan Gold 4L liquid fungicide for use on grapes, tree fruits and other specialty crops. A multi-site contact fungicide, Captan Gold 4L penetrates fungal spores, protecting crops against diseases like anthracnose, botrytis (gray mold), brown rot and scab. The manufacturer reports its product is the only liquid captan with a “caution” signal word. adama.com 
The new Pioneer utility vehicles by Honda feature an all-new, twin-cylinder 999cc engine. Honda claims the new Pioneer is the first side-by-side utility vehicle with a 6-speed fully automatic beltless transmission. The Pioneer 1000 is offered in four different configurations, from the base three-person version to the deluxe five-person model, which features 14-inch aluminum wheels, 27-inch radial tires, LED headlights and electric power steering. Every Pioneer 1000 comes standard with four-wheel-drive, as well as a high-low sub-transmission and 4-mode differential lock. powersports.honda.com 
The Hybrid 44P, or shipping bin, by Macro Plastics is meant for transporting grapes and other agricultural products cross-country or long distances. The new injection-molded, plastic bulk shipping container with a 48” x 44” base maximizes space utilization in refrigerated containers, and then disassembles for a return ratio of about 5 to 1. Named as one of the top ten new products at the 2015 World Ag Expo, the new bins allow for two-way or four-way lift truck entry and are available with solid or vented sides. The Shipper Bin also features an interlocking design to keep stacks straight and secure, and a bruise buffer zone between stacks to protect product within adjacent bins. macroplastics.com  
Randox Food Diagnostics released the RX altona wine analyzer that features both LED and halogen detection systems. The device has a testing range in wavelengths from 280 nm to 700 nm, and Randox claims the altona offers “outstanding” accuracy producing results within +/- 1% of UK lab accreditation standards. A new self-monitoring program detects potential analysis problems and reports them to the user. The system is designed to detect issues such as air bubbles and clots and monitor environmental conditions to prevent overheating. randox.com  
The new iColor line of digital printers by Uninet are designed for prototype, custom and variable data labeling. The iColor 700 and 900 printers feature low temperature LED printing, can print on pre-die cut and kiss cut labels and a patented feed system. "Our digital label printing equipment is perfect for companies who are tired of paying minimum order, plate and per color fees. It’s time to save time and money by going digital and bringing label printing in house” said Joe Dovi, COO at Uninet. uninetimaging.com 
Napa, CA and New York, NY, June 17, 2015—The two leaders in the wine on tap category, Free Flow Wines and Gotham Project, today announced a joint venture for a state-of-the-art production facility on the East Coast. The new kegging facility is expected to open in late 2015 in Kearny, New Jersey, subject to regulatory approval. The facility will be adjacent to the largest port in the country for imported wines and will offer kegging and logistics support to wineries, importers and distributors on the East Coast. Both companies will continue separate operations, with the joint facility enabling Free Flow Wines to better service clients on the East Coast and in Europe and allowing the Gotham Project to scale its business.
Shelton, Connecticut June 17, 2015 – SecureRF, a leading provider of security solutions for the Internet of Things, has been selected by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to present its lightweight, efficient asymmetric agreement protocol, the Algebraic Eraser (AE), at their upcoming Lightweight Cryptography Workshop 2015, July 20-21, 2015 in Gaithersburg, MD. At the event, which shines a spotlight on issues related to the security and resource requirements of applications in constrained environments, SecureRF will highlight key findings contained in their paper: Algebraic Eraser: A lightweight, efficient asymmetric key agreement protocol for use in no-power, low-power, and IoT devices. In the paper, SecureRF outlines key performance advantages of its Public-Key Diffie-Hellman style agreement protocol, AE, and how it outperforms other commercially available solutions to provide identification, authentication and encryption security for low power devices found on the Internet of Things. Specifically, in comparison against Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC), AE performed significantly better in both hardware and software – showing a 70 to 200 times improvement over ECC in speed and power (65nm CMOS). “SecureRF is honored to be selected to present what we believe to be a next generation asymmetric security protocol,” said SecureRF CEO Louis Parks. “The Algebraic Eraser is the world’s first and only linear-in-time algorithm that offers an ultra-low power, very fast security solution to address devices that are part of the Internet of Things. We are excited to have our methods reviewed by NIST and look forward to presenting the details of the Algebraic Eraser to conference attendees.” In addition to authentication, AE’s linear-in-time methods support a wide range of other cryptographic functions including identification, encryption/decryption, HASH functions, and is available via partnerships and licensing arrangements.
(Fairfield – CA) – If you are shipping produce cross-country or internationally and are still using wasteful cardboard or wood bins, you should consider switching to the Hybrid 44P or “Shipper Bin” from Macro Plastics. This new injection-molded plastic bulk shipping container with a 48” x 44” base maximizes space utilization in refrigerated containers when full, and then disassembles easily for an unmatched return ratio of about 5 to 1.
Petaluma, CA. Oenofrance USA LLC, leaders in winemaking supply and biotechnology, has announced Davison Winery Supplies as their exclusive distributor for the state of Oregon.

Carolina Locust, Inc., reports its new vineyard posts made with Black Locust, or Robinia pseudoacacia, which is a type of American hardwood tree, are a sustainable alternative to posts produced with pressure-treated wood. The company claims its chemical free, non-toxic posts can last 50 years or more. carolinalocust.com
Enartis Vinquiry and Vintessential are now offering kits to run enzymatic analysis with a spectrophotometer. The kits include enough reagents to run 30 to 100 tests for acetic acid, ammonia, amino acid nitrogen, citric acid, glucose/fructose, gluconic acid, lactic acid, malic acid and sucrose. enartisvinquiry.com, vintessential.com
InnoVint released its new real-time, wine production software that is designed to track every operation from the vineyard to the bottling line. The cloud-based system utilizes mobile devices for data entry and work orders. According to the manufacturer, InnoVint allows for a winemaker to assign work orders directly to mobile devices and those jobs can then be recorded remotely to provide real-time record-keeping and database updates. The system also provides for detailed reporting of all wine transfers, additions and other analytics. innovint.us
