Pre Event Description :
Under changing global scenario and conscious approach, the quality, competitive pricing and the environmental sustainability are the key elements of the agricultural production system. Scientific efforts need be made to develop technologies for horticultural crops to focus the attention on handling and processing; and to tackle specific areas to arrive at practical recommendations. There is a need to develop a protocol for post-harvest handling of those crops, including harvesting, sorting, grading, packaging etc., which could be very remunerative. Several by-products are very popular from those horticultural crops but need to be explored commercially. Strengthening, handling and processing research and establishing a processing unit at different locations will serve the training purpose. It will encourage the youth to come forward to be an entrepreneur in the processing industries. Considering the Post- Harvest Management's importance, a three-weeks online certificate course is organized from April 05 to April 25, 2021, by the CAAST-CSAWM, MPKV, Rahuri with following objectives.
