Consult textbooks, Extension publications, and trade journals, and become involved with grower organizations to find out more. Harvest Handling Quality cannot be improved after harvest, only maintained; therefore it is important to harvest fruits, vegetables, and flowers at the proper stage and size and at peak quality.   The existing methodology in conducting the surveys on marketable surplus and post-harvest losses of food grains should continue in future surveys of this type. The agencies designated for the collection of information on marketable surplus and post-harvest losses of food grains should be provided additional manpower, wherever necessary, for the.   Also, wastage of food grains, fruits, vegetables have also led to the spiralling of prices in recent years. The Government of India has already come up with the Food Security Act , which is.

Pre-harvest losses occur before the process of harvesting begins, and may be due to insects, weeds, and t losses occur between the beginning and completion of harvesting, and. Post-harvest handling of pulses plays an important role in pulse production systems and in food supply. Both quantitative and qualitative food losses of extremely variable magnitude occur at all stages in the post-harvest system from harvesting, through handling, storage, processing and marketing to final delivery to the consumer.

Postharvest Quality • To prolong the shelf life of a product, it is important to cooling it down to slow respiration.

• The importance and optimum storage temperature varies with: –The respiration rate of the product. –Whether the product is chilling sensitive. • Refer to File Size: 2MB. ♥ Book Title: Post Harvest Technology of Cereals, Pulses and Oilseeds ♣ Name Author: A.

Both quantitative and qualitative losses occur at all stages in the post-harvest handling system of the distribution chain of perishables (from harvesting, through handling, packing, storage and transportation to final delivery of the fresh produce to the consumer).

The rice post-harvest system requires improvement in the use of resources for research and development, particularly with regard to the level of post-harvest losses. These losses are attributed to a combination of factors during production and post-production operations (De Padua, ).

The post-harvest sector includes all points in the value chain from production in the field to the food being placed on a plate for consumption. Postharvest activities include harvesting, handling, storage, processing, packaging, transportation and marketing.

Losses of horticultural produce are a major problem in the post-harvest chain. In Ethiopia, like in other developing countries post harvest losses, including storage losses is estimated at %. Damages or loss of grains vary generally and are a function of crop variety.

Post-harvest food losses are still unacceptably high across the country and UZ agricultural experts say this is largely due to poor handling and storage practices by smallholder farmers, as well. World-wide losses of crops, post-harvest, through microbial action, pests, diseases and other types of spoilage amount to millions of tons every year.

Loss of weight Loss of nutritive value Poor milling quality Deterioration in flavor All these changes may occur without the mold becoming visible. Postharvest physiology and technology has been key to maintaining and extending the shelf-life of perishables and reducing food losses. However, postharvest losses are still significant and reduction of such losses would be the easiest, less costly, and most effective method instead of increasing food production (Pedreschi et al., a).
