Entrepreneur Development Programs(EDP) on Fruit Ripening
Mango is the major fruit crop of Adilabad district. It is cultivated in an area of 65,000 acres with annual production of 2.5 Lakh Mts.,. Apart from mango other fruit crops viz. Banana, Papaya, Citrus, Sapota, grapes, etc., are grown.
Fruits and vegetables produced in this area are artificially ripened by using calcium carbide (CaC2). Consuming such fruits and vegetables cause numerous ill-effects. There is an urgent need to curb the use of calcium carbide. This can be achieved by presently available technology like ripening chambers where fruits and vegetables are artificially ripened using ethylene gas.
In order to operate ripening chambers trained personnel are required. Therefore, our organization is proposing 50 training programmes on the construction and maintenance of ripening chambers.
