A Study On Post-harvest Losses Of Food Grains In Rajasthan

Author

Om Prakash Pathak, Dr R A Gupta

The post-harvest losses have been estimated at different stages in major food grains in Rajasthan. The data from 2007-08 to 2012-13 on area, production and productivity of two food grains have been under researcher analysis. The post-harvest losses have been estimated using the stratified sampling, data collected from farmers, wholesalers, processors and retailers in each crop in Rajasthan for the year 2012-13. Tabular analysis has been used to calculate approximately the post-harvest losses at different stages, and operative analysis has been used to assess the influence of socio-economic factors on post-harvest losses. Wheat output has been increased due to increased wheat productivity in India. The post-harvest losses at the farm level have been estimated to be 3.82 kg/ q for Oil seeds and 3.28 kg/q for wheat. The losses have been highest during storage in both the crops. The factors that influence the post-harvest losses significantly at the farm level have been identified and some policy implications have been suggested
