Dur­ing the five-day train­ing, which kicked off on Fe­bru­ary 21, the farm­ers were trained in post harvest man­age­ment and value ad­di­tion of fruit and vegetable, low cost stor­age and food pack­ag­ing for qual­ity and safety, pro­cess­ing and value ad­di­tion of tech­nolo­gies for soy­abean, agro-pro­cess­ing tech- niques, ce­real crops for value ad­di­tion, prac­ti­cal of chilli pro­cess­ing, util­i­sa­tion of potato waste for cat­tle feed.

Speak­ing on the oc­ca­sion, head of the Trans­fer of Tech­nol­ogy Deepak Raj Rai hoped that the farm­ers would have got hands-on-ex­pe­ri­ence in foods pro­cess­ing tech­nolo­gies. “Farm­ers can con­tact us any­time for in­for­ma­tion and tech­ni­cal sup­port,” he as­sured them, adding that the food-pro­cess­ing sec­tor would ex­pand a great deal ow­ing to de­mands from ur­ban pock­ets.
