Hundreds of farmers have benefitted from the initiative mooted by the agronomists and agriculture technologists of CIPHET.
With the help of training and technology know-how provided by the agriculture experts of CIPHET, I am planning to come-up in the market with packaged milk and cheese products from groundnuts in a week's time," said Dharmavir Singh, an agro entrepreneur.
Some of the agro products, which CIPHET is promoting among farmers are the processing of guava into guava bars, processing of green chilies into chili powder and chili paste.
Established in 1989 in Ludhiana, CIPHET undertakes research in the area of post-harvest engineering and technology appropriate to agricultural production and agro-industries.
As the production of powder/puree from green chilli is now possible with technology intervention of CIPHET, farmers would not require keeping their fields occupied one month more waiting for green chillies to turn red.
