Harvest & post-harvest handling techniques of Apple

(15th June, 2023), PHDEC conducted the webinar on the topic of ‘Harvest & post-harvest handling techniques of Apple.
The aim of the webinar was to bring maximum of the stakeholders on board to discuss harvesting, post harvest handling, transportation, loading, unloading, & storages issues of apple to minimize the post harvest losses and availability of premium quality apple in domestic and high-end-market. The apple fruit is more sensitive and responsive towards mishandling and malpractices of harvesting and packaging. Keeping in view the sensitivity of the product and the importance of harvesting and handling for good quality and yield, PHDEC chose this time frame to educate the apple farmers/growers, key farm workers on the subject. The experts from the local agriculture department enlightened the small holders of apple on recommended harvesting, postharvest handling, and packing techniques.
A large number of participants from growers, processors, exporters, R&D and academia participated in the webinar and appreciated the PHDEC’s initiative of conducting the webinar on an important topic of post-harvest management. Participants suggested that organizing physical activities would be more fruitful for stakeholders.
