Crop Handling & Processing Dep.
 
Introduction

      Crop Handling and Processing Department is one of the research Departments in the agricultural research institute which covers the researches, studies, the training and extension activities in processing and handling of agricultural products to develop sophisticated systems which targets quantity and quality losses reduction in agricultural products, also, optimizing final products quality to match the local and abroad markets requirements. The attention was paid, in previous stage, to maximize the quantity of agricultural products through elicitation varsities which have high productivity, and concerning about the mechanization for the most of field operations to the harvesting stage, nowadays, the concentration on searches, studies  and training courses approaches toward the enhancement in handling and processing operations (postharvest operations).

 
 
Activities

(1)- Applied researches were Conductedin various fields and branches of agricultural products processing and handling.

(2)-To carry out the development, modification and preparation of the processing and handlingdevices and equipment to upgrading the efficiency of such equipments, taking into account the rationalization of energy consumption, increasing the quality of the final product and reducing the losses.

(3)-Conducting training and extension courses, scientific seminars on the transfer of research results and special studies related to department activities to the main section of guidance and farmers and production sites.
