UNAPCAEM formulated a pilot project to strengthen the participating country¡¯s agricultural engineering and mechanization capacity by focusing on developing a package of suitable on-farm post-harvest technologies, including locally adaptable machineries and good agricultural practices. This technical assistance project was first rolled out in Myanmar. From 16-20 December 2010, in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation of Myanmar, UNAPCAEM organized a training workshop on rice harvesting and post-harvest technologies in Myanmar.  Fifty technicians, engineers, extension workers, as well as representatives from the research institutes, the private sector and rice miller associations from across the country joined the week-long training. The training covered drying, storage, processing as well as harvesting technologies in rice production. This training manual is prepared by Dr. Athapol Noomhorm of the Asian Institute of Technology of Thailand (AIT) and Dr. Shuren Chen of Jiangsu University of China, and is designed for trainers from national institutes responsible for agricultural mechanization and transfer of technology on rice production, agricultural extension workers and government policy makers.
