Scaling Up Post

By the end of 36 months the project will reach 7 000 smallholder farmers It also has the potential to benefit an additional 60 000 farmers by 2020 It will engage 60 youth as service providers and increase incomes through farmer-market linkages These innovations are expected to reduce post-harvest losses from the current 30% to 10% for the two crops The research team will share evidence

Feeding the World Today and Tomorrow: The Importance

Postharvest losses due to rodents insects and microbial spoilage in some areas amount to 30% or more of the harvested crop This results in wasted seed water fertilizer and labor Postharvest losses must be attacked with locally appropriate improvements in available technology Normile 2010) It is not enough merely to increase and conserve the supply of raw food it must be conserved
