Abstract
Cereals and food legumes are essential components of Indian diets, especially for low-income individuals. Food self-sufficiency remains an unattainable goal for these classes. Despite the fact that India is now self-sufficient in cereal production, it still needs to improve pulses to fulfil its domestic needs. This is not necessarily or just due to in efficiency in local production system; it may also be due to post harvest losses. In the case of pulses, post-harvest losses are estimated to be in the range of 25-30 percent. This is due to the fact that pulses must pass through a number of unit operations before being converted to dal. Every stage of processing results in certain losses, which must be minimised. Reduced post-production losses will help India achieve nutritional protection. Indeed, improvements in productivity must be accompanied by improvements in post-harvest operations and the avoidance of post-harvest losses. Traditional approaches, appropriate technology, and mechanised processes are all explored in depth, as are the experiences or solutions that arise from their use. It also recommends strategies for using by-products in the production of value-added products, thereby increasing farmer profits. It also makes recommendations for future research directions in this area.
