    Improving Grain Post-Harvest Handling and Storage for Smallholder Farmers in Eritrea - TCP/ERI/3705 2023
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Eritrea faces post harvest losses ( of approximately 30 percent across most, if not all, its staple grain harvests Post harvest losses impact the entire country’s economy, but most directly smallholder farmers and their families Initial data indicates that there are an estimated 500 000 smallholder farmer households in Eritrea, and approximately 450 000 to 500 000 hectares of land are cultivated However, due to traditional farming practices and consecutive droughts, production does not usually meet consumption requirements Low agricultural productivity is one of the major challenges, which, combined with PHL, is the major factor giving rise to the necessity to import foodstuffs Against this background, the project aimed to address significant PHL in the country caused by poor handling, drying and storage, and to contribute to increased self reliance of agricultural communities This would be achieved through the provision of post harvest handling training and household hermetic storage equipment.

    Seed storage
    2018
    Also available in:

    Seeds are the vehicle for delivering the improvements in a crop to the farmer’s field. They are therefore a critical input in agricultural production. Seeds are also unique in that they must remain alive and healthy when they are used and that they are also the input that farmers can produce by themselves. It is estimated that 25–33% of the world grain crop, including seeds, is lost each year during storage. To avert this obvious drawback to food security and nutrition, this module provides the underlying principles for effective seed storage and the associated practices. The module provides guidance on the preservation of seeds under controlled environmental conditions so as to maximize seed viability for the long periods that may be required from harvesting through processing to planting.
