Abstract

With the rapid changes of agricultural products market condition and consumers’ choice for better quality and diversified food materials, the post-harvest management system moved from individual farm to large scale processing center in order to reduce management cost and get both high quality and safe agricultural products production. The number of Rice Processing Center (RPC), that can accomplish all rice related post-harvest operations, for example, drying, storage, processing, shipping, is 339 which can deal with 30% of total rice production in Korea. By the spreading of RPC, it could reduce the cost and labor needed in rice post-harvest operations by 31.8% and 63.9%, respectively, compared to those of individual farm. In addition, it also reduced various rice post-harvest operation loss by 1% from 6% of before RPC processing era. (The rest omitted)
