Post-Harvest Management of Horticultural Crops by S Saraswathy
Book Summary:

Indias diverse agro-climatic conditions facilitate production of a wide range of horticultural crops. Unfortunately, almost 25-40% of the total fruits and vegetables produced in the country are lost every year solely due to improper postharvest operations. Effective management during the postharvest period, rather than the level of sophistication of any given technology, is the key in reaching the desired objectives. In the recent past, research activities are being undertaken all over the country and world.
