Hermatic Grain Storage Bags
Post-harvest losses are disproportionately borne by smallholders, who invest in costly hybrid maize seed and fertilizer, and in some parts of the country, even harvest more maize than their family can consume in each season.
Yet, few are well equipped to store the surplus grain, and up to one-fifth of each year’s harvest spoils before it can be consumed by producers or sold to others
Small-scale solutions, like hermetically-sealed storage bags, can help farming households reduce and manage post-harvest losses.
These are innovative storage options that seal crops in a vacuum pouch and eliminate the need for storage pesticides like actellic dust.
The bags are designed to protect farmers’ harvests by hermetically sealing the grain stored, cutting off the oxygen supply to pests that would otherwise damage it.
Hermartic bags guarantee 0 per cent pest damage, compared to 8 per cent with alternatives that are widely available, like gunny bags, and they can also be reused for up to three years.
