Harvest Settings (Receive Fruit options and Expected Yield)

Before harvest begins, be sure to review your Harvest settings in InnoVint. Harvest settings include options on how to Receive Fruit in the system and also setting the Expected yield per variety for calculations and predictions. Additional settings are available should you choose Advanced Receive Fruit. 

This article covers:


Choosing your Receive Fruit option: Simple vs Advanced

There are two (2) options for how to receive fruit in InnoVint:

  1. Simple
    • No weigh tag generation
    • Net weight entry only
  2. Advanced
    • Automatic weigh tag generation
    • Enter individual scale readings to calculate gross, tare, and net weight

For more detailed information on Simple vs Advanced Receive Fruit options, see this article in the Support Center.

Each new winery account is set to the Simple Receive Fruit option.  If you decide on the Advanced Receive Fruit option, click on . This will open a new window and prompt you to set a starting weigh tag number.


Once you have Advanced Receive Fruit active, your Harvest Settings screen will look like this:

You will also see the tab appear in the Settings navigation bar under Harvest settings. Here you can view, add and edit information that will auto-populate your weigh tags

For more information on activation and detailed settings for Advanced Receive Fruit, see this article in the Support Center.

Setting the Expected Yield

From the same Harvest Settings tab, InnoVint allows you to set an Expected Yield per weight unit for each variety you source. The expected yield estimates the volume of a lot that is currently tracked in weight for the purposes of calculating volume-based additive rates.

Setting the expected yield for a variety only affects fruit lots created in the future (i.e. it does not update the expected yield for fruit lots that have already been created in InnoVint).

If the expected yield is not set for a particular variety, InnoVint assumes a default rate of 150 gallons per ton. Please the default metric unit rates below, which are used depending on your winery's chosen volume and weight units.

NOTE: The expected yield of a lot will automatically adjust if a bleed/saignée is recorded via direct action or work order.

  1. Click on +Add varietal to select a varietal from the drop-down list
  2. Update your expected yield for each variety
  3. Click on  before navigating away from this page

     * To remove a varietal from the list, scroll over to the far right and click 'delete'

Default Metric Units 

  • 165 gal/tonne
  • 0.165 gal/kg
  • 570 liters/ton
  • 628 liters/tonne
  • 0.628 liters/kg
  • 5.7 hl/ton
  • 6.28 hl/tonne
  • 0.00628 hl/kg

Note: InnoVint also allows you to set the expected yield per fruit lot. See this article for instructions on how to set the expected yield for a specific fruit lot during fruit lot creation.
