Post Harvesting Technologies Market Growth and Forecast 2018 – 2028

Farming helps most countries increase their economy that is dependent on agriculture. Farming is not only associated with commercialization and sparked images of rows of vegetables. After farming, post harvesting technologies are used to prevent crops deteriorate by cooling, cleaning, sorting and packing. Post harvesting technologies determines the final quality, whether a crop is sold for fresh consumption, or used as an ingredient in a processed food product. The most important factor of using post harvesting technologies is to keep the product cool and also to avoid moisture loss. Post harvesting technologies slows down undesirable chemical changes, and avoids physical damages, such as bruising and spoilage. Post harvesting technologies processes are usually conducted in a packed house. In post harvesting technologies, the storage conditions are critical to maintain quality. With the help of post harvesting technologies, each crop has an optimum range of storage temperature and humidity. The basic principles of post harvesting technologies for most crops are the same, handle with care to avoid damage (cutting, crushing, bruising), cool immediately and maintain in cool conditions, and cull (remove damaged items).

The method of post harvesting technologies depends on the size of the operation and the amount of mechanization. The different type of methods used in post harvesting technologies are manual harvesting, machine threshing, machine reaping, and combine harvesting. Post harvesting technologies are used to develop in relation with needs of each society to stimulate agriculture production, prevent post-harvest losses, improve nutrition and add value of production. The process of developing of post harvesting technologies and its purposeful use need on inter disciplinary and most multidimensional approach.
