Field Worthy Technologies and Machines Developed

Maize dehusker, Maize dehusker sheller (Paddle operated as well as power operated), Garlic bulb breaker, Garlic peeler, Garlic clove flaker, Aloe vera gel extractor, Ginger peeler, Ginger polisher, Microwave dryer, Extruder for value added products from bajra, Solar dryer, Heat treatmemt machine, Seed treatment machine, Tumba seed separation machine, Grain storage bin, Stalk waferer.

 

The major field-worthy processing technologies developed by this department are

 

Garlic processing technology

Ginger and turmeric processing technology

Technology for henna processing

Technology for value added product from bajra

Technology for maize rab

Process technology of arid fruits and vegetables

 

Many of them have been commercialized and few are under commercialization. With more and more awareness and seasonal shortage of labour, the farmers/cooperative society/NGOs are coming ahead for adoption of improved machines and technologies to start rural agro processing units. Besides R&D, trainings are also imparted to farmers for creating awareness for value addition through post harvest processing.
