Biographical entry Mitchell, R. S.
- Food scientist
R. S. Mitchell and Lynch of CSIRO invented an instrument called a Maturometer for use with peas in the early 1950s. It measured and predicted the time of optimum quality of peas for freezing and canning and could also indicate whether or not a crop should be processed at all.
