NCPB Starts Drive to Cut Grain Losses

The National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB), an agricultural commodity management and trading organization in East and Central Africa, is currently advising and training Kenyan maize farmers on how to mitigate issues that cause postharvest loss. In addition to strategies for proper handling and fumigation, NCPB is urging farmers to utilize the warehouse receipting system. Many farmers reject this plan, however, because withholding their crop is not realistic when maize production is their main source of income.
