Development of Radiation Technology
Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) and Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) had together engaged in R&D work on the technology of preservation and hygienization of food and agri-products by radiation.
Irradiation is very effective in treating the horticultural produces.
In irradiation, food products are subjected to a low dosage of radiation to treat them for germs and insects, increasing their longevity and shelf life.
How this will help India?
In India, according to estimates, post-harvest losses in food and food grains are around 40-50%, primarily due to insect infestation, microbiological contamination, physiological changes due to sprouting and ripening, and poor shelf life.
With irradiation, it is possible to reduce these losses.
