FINAL REPORT

20 SPOKE:WARUD

Warud has been identified as a spoke due to its proximity to the major orange growing regions in Amravati district. It is also well connected by roads to major cities such as Nagpur and Amravati and hence can act as feeder to these major orange trading hubs. It lies on the intersection of State Highways 10, 244 and 248. State Highway 10 connects Warud to Amravati and State Highway 248 connects it o Nagpur. Proposed aggregation points are as follows:AggregationPoints Jarud Bihoda Themburkheda Loni Rajurbazar Jamgaon Morshi FocusCrop Orange Orange Orange Orange Orange Orange Orange

All the aggregation points are within a radius of 15 Km from the spoke except Morshi which is at a distance of about 30 Kms.

20.1 FOCUSCROPSANDESTIMATEDTHROUGHPUTThe major fruit grown in the catchment of Warud is orange. Warud block in Amravati is the largest orange growing clusters in the district. Focus crop for the proposed facility in Warud are orange and banana. Throughputs have been estimated based on present production in the catchment area, the present capacities of existing similar infrastructures/facilities, potential for interventions, and stakeholders consultations. The spoke and its catchment area produce about 0.2 million MT of oranges annually, which accounts for around 50% of the total production of oranges in the district. The spoke is expected to handle 10,000 MT of the focus crop which is less than 1% of the total production in the catchment areas. The estimated annual throughput of the pack house in MT is as follows:Spoke Warud Orange 10000

The arrival pattern of the focus crops in the proposed facility shall be according to the crop season as follows:Crops Orange Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sep Oct Nov Dec

20.2 PROPOSEDFACILITIESFacilities have been designed on the basis of requirement of the focus crops, to induce better and efficient handling practices and faster evacuation of fresh produce to the consumption markets so as to ensure better quality to the consumer.

existing facilities, their capacities and utilization has also been taken into account. The proposed new facilities are as follows:

20.2.1 AmbientOrangePackhouseAs mentioned earlier, the existing pack houses in the region with pre-cooling and cold store facilities have not been successfully functional mainly due to reasons such as inadequate marketing/export linkages, cheap manual labour, lack of refrigerated vehicles, etc. Hence, considering the present scenario in the region, ambient interventions are proposed keeping in mind the practicality of such interventions. In the ambient packing house for orange following infrastructure will be provided: Covered Pack shed (open to ambient) with landing area. Requisite weighing equipment and transaction recording arrangement. Sorting and grading areas (with tables). Packaging store and Packing tables. Waste disposal systems. Vehicle Parking areas.

The capacity of the pack house will be 100 MT/day and it would employ for than 60 labourers for the operations.

AggregationMechanismforthePackhouseThe pack house shall receive material from various aggregation points as well as directly from the farms. The pack house will develop an aggregation mechanism and send trucks/pick-ups to the aggregation points for collection of produce. It will establish direct relationship with farmers and provide extension and training support to them for best farming practices, better post harvest handling practices, efficient use of inputs and technology transfer etc. Farmers will be encouraged to come together as producer companies and set up and manage aggregation points wherever possible. Pack house may also invest in developing infrastructure at aggregation points such as platforms, sheds, etc.

FINAL REPORT

PackhouseLogisticsThe produce will come to the pack house from aggregation points and farms in various modes of transport such as trucks (4 MT), vans, tractor trolleys, etc. Expected peak arrival of vehicles is about 20 per day. The average out-going vehicles at peak of 10/15 MT capacity will be 8-9 per day. Small capacity field vehicles, load 800kgs to 1MT, are incorporated in the project to serve as feeders from local farms or aggregation points as backward integration. These vehicles can be with insulated body deploying pre-cooled chill packs. This is foreseen to increase field reach, hence enhancing catchment range.

20.2.2 DryWarehouseA dry warehouse of 2000 MT capacity is also proposed. It will be used for storage of pulses and soyabean which is abundantly produced in catchment of cluster. The warehouses would plan for sufficient parking and eased traffic flow layout along with waste disposal areas.

20.2.3 Addon/CommercialFacilitiesThere will be other facilities/amenities: Business Centre Parking Area Canteen Weigh Bridge Water Supply Facilities DG Rooms Solid Waste Management Area Other amenities

FINAL REPORT

21 SPOKE:ANJANGAON

Anjangaon has been identified as a spoke due to its proximity to the major orange and banana growing region in Amravati district. It is well connected by road to cities such as Amravati (76 km) and Akola (75 km) which are in turn connected by good road and railway network to big destination markets of Mumbai, Pune, Kolhapur, Nagpur, Indore and also to distant markets such as Rajkot, Delhi, Kolkata and other cities. Anjangaon is also connected to Murtijapur, which is a station on BhusavalNagpur section of Central Railway. Proposed aggregation points and their distances from the spoke are as follows:AggregationPoints Pathroth Pandri Anjangaon Karla Bhandaraj Lokhed NimkhedBajar FocusCrop BananaandOrange BananaandOrange Banana OrangeandBanana Orange Orange Orange Distance(inKms) 10 5 1 10 7 4 8

All the aggregation points are within a radius of 15 Km from the spoke.

21.1 FOCUSCROPSANDESTIMATEDTHROUGHPUTMajor fruits grown in the catchment of Anjangaon are orange and banana. Anjangaon block in Amravati is the largest banana growing cluster in the district having about 80% of the total production of the district. As per the field survey, the spoke and its catchment produces around 60,000 MT of banana annually. Focus crops for the proposed facility in Anjangaon are orange and banana. Since the spoke is located in the fruit producing belt, a viable volume (that is less than 1% of the districts production) has been targeted. Estimated throughputs have been identified based on present production in the catchment area, the present capacities of existing similar infrastructures/facilities, potential for interventions, and stakeholders consultations. The estimated annual throughput of the pack house in MT is as follows:Spoke Anjangaon Orange 10000 Banana 5000

The arrival pattern of the focus crops in the proposed facility shall be according to the crop season as follows:Crops Orange Banana Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sep Oct Nov Dec

As shown above, the facility would receive year round supply of fresh fruit and hence, capacity utilization of the pack house would be ensured throughout the year.
