Consumers rely on food processing and storage facilities to ensure the ideal environmental conditions for produce from the moment it is picked at the field to the time it reaches a grocery store. When it comes to cold storage, humidity and temperature levels are among the most important considerations to prolong the life of fruits and vegetables. When environmental conditions are not ideal, produce deteriorates and becomes potentially harmful to consumers.

Millet Market Project
Of late, millets are being utilized for various purposes such as food, feed, fodder and more recently, as bio-fuel. Back-up of several technologies and viable options like, intercropping, drought management, rainwater conservation, nutrient management, plant protection, preparation of market-oriented products and processing are necessary for enhancing farmer’s income and to achieve the goal of food and nutrition security. While achieving this, we need to manage natural resources effectively for their sustainable production.
