Process

Post harvest technology

After the bunch is taken out, the fruits are placed with the crown facing downwards onto a layer of leaves to allow for latex drainage.

 

Stowing process

During stowing there are some precautions taken so that while storing the fruit, it does not get damaged.

Packaging

  • Cushioning pads or kraft paper should be placed at the bottom of the box to create modified atmosphere.

Transportation

The harvested bananas from the gardens are usually transported as cart loads and as lorry loads, the transport for interstate trade are executed through lorry services and railway wagons.
