Models for Predicting The Mass of Persimmon (Diospyros kaki) Fruits by Some Physical Properties

  The main aim of this study was to predict the mass of two Indian persimmon cultivars (Hachiya and Fuyu) based on their physical properties by applying linear regression models with three different classification i.e. mass models based on dimensions, projected area and volume. Results showed...
