Reducing Crop Loss through Improved Post-Harvest Management
Join the Feed the Future Developing Local Extension Capacity (DLEC) Project’s next webinar in conversation with Kevin Kelsey from IDinsight. Kevin will share results from IDinsight’s evaluation of post-harvest handling and storage (PHHS) extension services in Zambia’s Southern and Central Provinces. The intervention aimed to train 40,000 farmers on post-harvest best practices (drying, storing) through a “lead farmer-to-farmer” model. If adopted, the PHHS practices were expected to reduce post-harvest crop losses and improve crop quality, leading to increased farmer income.
