National Production & Post Harvest Scenario:

National Production & Post Harvest Scenario Agriculture contributes about 17.5% of GDP, employees 57% workforce and sustains approx over 70% of the population India produces about 230 million tons of food grains and 53.1 and 91.6 million tons of fruits and vegetables and ranks second in world Post harvest losses are 3-18% amounting to Rs. 45000 crores Low level of processing of fruits and vegetables at only 2% . Food processing is employment intensive, creates 1.8 jobs directly and 6.4 indirectly for every Rs. 10 lakh investment

Haryana Production & Post Harvest Scenario:

Haryana Production & Post Harvest Scenario The area under horticulture crops has reached about 6.34 percent of the cropped area Vegetable cultivation has crossed over 3.43 lakh hectares and production over 40 lakh metric tonnes mark. Fruit production of 11,656 tonnes from 45,193 hectares. Over 7.59 lakh tonnes of vegetables from 17,370 hectares 55,101 tonnes of spices from an area of 1,857 hectares. Medicinal plants and flowers were grown over an area of 316 hectares and 175 hectares.

Reasons for Losses :

Reasons for Losses Handling of raw produce through many stages of middlemen. Processing is mostly controlled by urban rather than rural entrepreneurs which leads to losses in valuable by products. Non availability of adequate and efficient equipment and machinery to be used in catchment areas. Low level of entrepreneurial urge in rural areas due to constraints of finance, assured market and proper training on technology On the whole, there exists a fragmented and inefficient value chain Higher the Value Addition Better the PH Management and Lower Will Be Losses

Agro Processing :

Agro Processing Can provide processed food of highest quality at affordable cost to consumers Help environment by processing food in production catchment with least food miles Ensure traceability of raw materials used for processed product hence great for export and elite urban market. Help effective backward linkage with farmers for processing their raw produce Shorten the supply chain, increase the profitability of farmers and ultimately increase in GDP from agriculture and reduce poverty Reduce post harvest losses and increased availability of by products for further processing.
