Leaves of "tendu" (goub persimmon, Diospyros palmata). are used for long term storage of mahuva fruits. A layer of "tendu" leaves is first laid at the base of storage container then 5-6 kg mahuva fruits are placed. In this way layer upon layer of "tendu" and mahuva are laid and the container is finally sealed with the last layer of "tendu" leaves. For storage of (Eleusine coracana) grains a novel way is to store these with gram (Cicer arietinum). This way both the grains remain free of pests and are kept in good condition for years.
