This project sought to address technical constraints to the on-farm storage of legumes, and to identify and improve uptake pathways best fitted to the circumstances of these poorer households. Poorer food crop farmers are currently faced with deteriorating food stocks, and are effectively excluded from the possibility of securing price premiums associated with clean grain. Working predominantly through the Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MoFA) in Ghana and with a coalition of state researchers and extension staff, farmers’ associations and NGOs in Uganda, the project engaged a mix of farmers in validating new and improved methods for post-harvest pest control.
