Global food security is a challenging issue to meet the food and nutritional requirements and has become an issue for national policymakers and public concern. There is a need to enhance agricultural production as well as to reduce the postharvest loss, improve the quality of the processed products and add value to the products to make more quality food available. Agro product processing technology plays the major role to reduce the post harvest losses, improve the quality of processed products and add value to the products. This also would generate employment and ultimately would contribute to food security.


  • Covers wide spectrum of agro-product processing technology
  • Explains the principles and practices of agro-product processing technology with a good number of worked examples to learn the basic principles quickly through examples
  • Contains examples from different operations on current problems to show the wide applications of principles of agro product technology
  • Includes process control and emerging technologies in agro product processing such as energy and exergy analysis, neural network modelling and cfd modelling

This book deals with physical and thermal properties, cleaning and sorting, drying and storage, parboiling and milling, by product utilization, heating and cooling refrigerated cooling and cold storage. The unique feature of this book is the machine vision for grading fruits, process control and materials handling and emerging technologies such as neural network, finite element, cfd and genetic algorithm.
