Division of Postharvest Technology

Background

The Division of Postharvest Technology is for assess and quantify postharvest losses of various agri-horticultural commodities in the existing supply chain and identifies major contributing factors to the postharvest losses and the available technological interventions to counter/ contain the same. This division is provided to reduce postharvest 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- postharvest management and value addition of cereals, pulses, oilseeds, fruits and vegetables.

Objectives

  • Reduction of postharvest losses of food grain viz. Paddy and Pulses through improved postharvest technologies with respect to harvesting, threshing, drying, milling, packaging, storage and other postharvest operations.
  • Extending the marketability of horticultural produce through appropriate postharvest handling and processing for better income
  • Entrepreneurship development through short-term training courses on PHT
