Our Bureau

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Regional Research Laboratory, Thiruvananthapuram (RRL-T) is gearing up to commission and hand over a five-tonne-per-day fresh ginger processing plant to the North Eastern Regional Agricultural Marketing Corporation (NERAMAC) in Guwahati on Wednesday.

According to Dr T.K. Chandrashekar, Director, RRL-T, the new plant is located at Byrnihat, Meghalaya. The technology, developed in-house by the Agro-Processing Division, has generated a lot of enquiries from the region and the North Eastern Development Council has promised to replicate the same in all seven States.

After Manipur, this is the second so-called `Swing' Technology-based plant to come up in this region. Meghalaya is the second largest producer of ginger in the country, after Kerala. RRL-T is actively considering setting up another plant in Ladakh, Dr Chandrashekar said.
