Research & Collaboration


The Division of Post harvest Technology is for assess and quantify post harvest losses of various agri-horticultural commodities in the existing supply chain and identifies major contributing factors to the post harvest losses and the available technological interventions to counter/ contain the same. This division is provided to reduce post harvest losses of the agri-horticultural produce to enhance the profitability of the stakeholders of the supply chain. Impart need-based training in identified areas like- post harvest management and value addition of cereals, pulses, oil seeds, fruits and vegetables.


  • Reduction of post harvest losses of food grains viz. Paddy and Pulses through improved post-harvest technologies with respect to harvesting, threshing, drying, milling, packaging , storage and other post-harvest operations
  • Extending the marketability of horticultural produce through appropriate post-harvest handling and processing for better income
  • Capacity building through HRD on Post-harvest Technology through Ph. D. level research and academic program
  • Entrepreneurship development through short-term training courses on PHT
