Post Harvest Handling
My major aim will be to improve the storage and handling of harvested products.
EXPLAIN YOUR IDEA
My idea is the implementation of post harvesting handling techniques that are ecologised to different locations based on what they can access. This will be via encouraging modern storage facilities constructions. The implementation of the idea will help farmers to reduce lossess that are experienced immediately after harvesting by encouraging pest control, increasing shelf life of food products using controlled environments and controlled atmospheres. Therefore, the food spoilage incidences will be reduced therefore promoting a longer shelf life that will spill over to improved food security.
The major beneficiaries will be small scale farmers although the idea can also be of benefit to the other major stakeholders in the agricultural sector i.e the government and the private investors.
WHERE WILL YOUR IDEA BE IMPLEMENTED?
The idea will be implemented in the rural parts of Nyeri, in Kenya.

EXPERTISE IN SECTOR
