Abstract

Wheat and rice form the staple diet in India and most of the produced crop gets utilized in India itself. Corn accounts for the major share of India's coarse grain production and is also utilized widely. The use of technology and modern inputs has increased the crop yield to many folds in comparison to the Increase in the input costs. Segregation of the grain from the panicle, sorting the grain from the straw and winnowing the chaff from the grain are the chief operations. Milling comprises of the chief procedure of processing. Dry milling segregates the outer fibrous material and germ, which are considered by products of grain endosperm. In contrast, wet milling is mainly used for production of starch and gluten and every cereal grain can be wet milled with the use of appropriate modification or processing but is primarily used for corn & wheat .Malting, is a process of controlled germination, to activate the enzyme of resting grain for conversion of cereal starch to fermentable sugar, partial hydrolysis of cereal proteins and other macromolecules .The preservation and storage of these cereals is also of prime importance for the country because post harvest losses are very high in India. Insects are the major cause of damage and losses, they cause quantitative, qualitative and structural storage container damage losses. The modern method for storage includes Silos for large volume and bulk storage, godowns and warehouses are also specifically designed in manner to protect quantity and quality of the stored product.
