  Quality Control and Scientific Preservation

 

The Food Corporation of India has an extensive and scientific  stock preservation system. An on-going programme sees that both prophylactic and curative treatment is done  timely and adequately. Grain in storage is continuously scientifically graded, fumigated and aerated by qualified trained and experienced personnel.

 

 

Food Corporation of India's testing laboratories spread across the country for effective monitoring of quality of foodgrains providing quality assurance as per PFA leading improved satisfaction level in producers (farmers) and customers (consumers).

 

 
 

The preservation of foodgrain starts, the minute it arrives in the  godowns. The bags themselves are kept on wooden crates/poly pallets to avoid moisture on contact with the floor. Further till the bags are dispatched/issued, fumigation to prevent infestation etc. of stocks is done on an average every 15 days with MALATHION  and once in three months with DELTAMETHRIN etc. on traces of infestation, curative treatment is done with Al.  PHOSPHIDE.

 

 
  FCI's testing laboratories spread across the country (188) ensure that the stored foodgrains retain their essential nutritional qualities as per FAQ.
