AgNext Technologies collaborated with NAFED to organise a virtual training and awareness programme for Maharashtra’s biggest FPOs (Farmer Producer Organizations) on pulses’ quality assessment. AgNext engaged with five FPOs – VCMF, Markfed, MahaFPC, Pruthashakti and VAAPCO – to create awareness about the quality standards of pulses, particularly toor dal, for the upcoming procurement season. The session was attended by FPO leaders, who will in turn train 40,000-50,000 farmers across Maharashtra.

The objective of the training programme was to train the FPOs about the different market quality standards for tur dal. On the basis of this assessment, the commodity is graded and priced in the market. Practical demonstrations of physical assessment parameters were done to apprise the participants on how to recognise broken, damaged, immature, shriveled or weevilled pulses, foreign matter presence, moisture content in the samples, and other essential parameters. The participants were also shown how AgNext’s physical quality assessment device ‘SpecX Visio’ can instantly analyse the tur dal samples and do the physical quality check in less than a minute.
