In order to minimize the post harvest
losses the State Government has established Post Harvest
Technology Centre at Punjab Agricultural University Ludhiana
with the financial assistance of PSAMB. The basic purpose of
this centre is to develop techniques for increasing the
shelf life of horticultural and vegetable produce and to
impart training to the producers, traders, concerned
government department employees for proper handling,
grading, storage, packaging and transportation of produce.
This will benefit the growers as well as traders to improve
quality and minimize losses of fruit and vegetables in the
State, ultimately benefiting consumers.
