• Research on post-harvest processing, preservation, storage and value addition of agricultural commodities.
  • Human resource and entrepreneurship development in post-harvest engineering and technology.


Creating prosperity through minimization of post harvest losses from 15% to 5% and increase in value addition from present level of 10% to 30% to produce and by-products from crops, horticulture, livestock and fisheries sectors.


Higher profitability of agricultural production systems ensuring better income to farmer sand increased employment opportunities in rural sector through efficient post harvest engineering and technological interventions for loss reduction and value addition to agricultural produce and byproducts resulting in high quality and safe food and feed at competitive prices for domestic and export markets.
