Harvesting Of Agricultural Products E-Learning
Virtual training of agricultural harvesting has been created for people to be fully acquainted with agricultural harvesting. After the end of all operations related to land preparation, planting and maintenance of the crop, it is time to harvest. Impressions are gained in a fluid, global, diffused way. One of the important factors to consider is that the physiological signs of crop ripening are quite different in different crops. For example, in cereals, legumes, forage plants and tuberous plants, each of which flowers in some way while changing color. And their harvesting methods are different.
The early stages of harvesting are vital to maintaining product quality. Each has an optimal temperature and humidity range for storage. Also, some products cannot be stored together due to chemical interactions. Respiration is a permanent process in all plant cells that cannot be stopped without damaging the plant. Breathing consumes the internal reserves of the cell and creates undesirable compounds in them, and reducing the respiration rate is one of the effective techniques to increase the post-harvest life, which is possible, for example, in the case of apples. Of course, if the respiration rate is done with changes in the atmosphere of the warehouse and these changes are not in the tolerance range of the product, then fermentation occurs instead of respiration, which causes damage and loss of products.
Moisture loss is another reason for crop failure. The products are very different in this respect, for example, leafy vegetables plasticize very quickly, but potatoes have a much lower rate of water loss. Maintaining the atmospheric humidity Storage of products is also one of the key points of post-harvest storage.
