Modernization and Technological Up gradation for reduced Processing Cost
Due to low farm level productivity, the Indian oilseed sector is unable to grow rapidly. There are other factors that also lead to depletion in the production rate. Some of the factors are: multi-tier trading, excessive middlemen, lack of requisite modernisation like - technological up gradation in storage, preparation, conveying and transportation, processing and packaging.
Lack of modernization in this sector has augmented the problems in oilseed processing that include expression of oil, solvent extraction, refining and hydrogenation and optimal expression of oils.
