Chemical and engineering factors


Chemical  factors

  • The pesticide residue in the  produce will  effect  the  feed  value  and  detoriations occur during  storage. 
  • Hence, care should  be taken for correct dose of spraying pesticides and also avoiding spray at the late stages of maturity.

Engineering  factors

  • Engineering factors refer such  as  storage structures (bag  or  bulk storage), mechanical (conveying  of  produce, threshing and  shelling).
  • During  these  process  grains  are  broken  and  may  result in rapid spoilage during  the  storage.
