Machineries for mango

Harvesting tools, machineries for pickle making, machineries and hot water treatment plant for mango




India is the largest producer of mango and about 23 lakh hectare of land is under cultivation of mango. The mango harvester for mango and tractor operated hydraulic platform have been developed for harvesting mangoes from tall trees. The mango harvester harvests mango with 1-2 cm long pedicle, it needs less force to harvest the fruit and shelf life of the fruit is increased by 3-4 days. About 100 kg of mango fruits can be harvested in one hour. Mangoes are stored for 8- 10 days in pulp making industry for ripening. There is post harvest loss by fruit fly and anthracnose infestation. The mango pulp industry have established in a big way. About 1.5 lakh tonnes of pulp with a value of Rs. 621 crore is being exported per year. About 63 thousand tonne mango worth Rs. 210 crore is being exported from India. The fruits treated with hot water have lesser post harvest loss. The hot water treatment plant is for mango export and pulp industry. The treatment can be given to reduce storage losses due to anthracnose and fruit fly. This also reduces the time for ripening the fruits for pulp industry hence the fruit inventory is reduced to almost half.
