Kudos for addressing food safety!

In relation to Isaiah's climate-related comment above, it seems like the need for sharing knowledge and technologies about best practices for food safety will become greater as increasing climate variability potentially introduces new or rare contaminants in food storage facilities. It seems like this model could be applied in other places, with other kinds of crops, or with other kinds of contaminants. Even under changing environmental conditions that come with climate variability.

Best of luck in the challenge!

It is great to see connections with other ideas/organizations being made through the comments!

I am curious how reliable the forecasts are in your project area in Ethiopia? Also, in some rural areas weather data can be hard to come by.

With the goal of scaling up in the future and covering more remote areas, have you given any thought to how to supplement poor data quality or poor forecast skill to provide recommendations that are still reliable? (I understand that this might be beyond the scope of this pilot project, I'm just curious!)

Thank you and good luck in the challenge!
