IONIZING RADIATION TECHNOLOGY FOR GRAINS
Radiation by electron accelerators uses high energy of electrons and X-rays to eliminate pathogens, bacteria, insect pests.
Working principle of electron accelerator:
Electron accelerator generates and accelerates electrons, which penetrate the product and induce breaks in the DNA of pathogens.
Grain irradiation ensures full elimination of pests and can successfully replace fumigation. This type of treatment is effective even when grains are highly contaminated with insects, fungi, bacteria, viruses, moulds that appear due to unfavourable climatic conditions.
