    Improved postharvest technologies for promoting food storage, processing and household nutrition in Tanzania Improved postharvest technologies for promoting food storage, processing and household nutrition in Tanzania Presentation Transcript

    • Improved postharvest technologies for promoting food storage, processing and household nutrition in Tanzania  Africa RISING A joint project by IITA and CIMMYTEast and Southern Africa Research Review and Planning Meeting,  Arusha, Tanzania, 1-5 October 2012   Tefera, T., Abass, A.B., Ndunguru, G.T., P. Matawo, Mamiro, P., Mlingi, N., C. Makalanag
    • ObjectivesObjective 1. Improve scientific knowledge fordeveloping strategies that will expand agro-processing sectorObjective 2. Improve post-harvest storage andfood processing of householdsObjective 3. Create awareness on postharvest lossreducing technologies among stakeholders
    • Local Partners• SARI (Selian Agricultural Research Institute)• Sokoine University
    • Improved storage: On-station testingMetal silo SGBs-GrainPro Farmers/ Normal bag
    • M = Metal silo alone P = Farmers’ bagMA = Metal silo + Actellic PA = Farmers’ bag +MP = Metal silo + Phostoxin Actellic SGB = Super Grain Bag
    • Assessment of PHL in Tanzania
    • PH grain losses factors in Tanzania LGB ‘Osama, Scania’
    • PH grain losses-insects
    • Storage structures
    • Training: Increasing local silo production capacity 20 artisans trained
    • Sensitization(at Babati, Kondoa, Meru)
    • On-farm demos (at Kondoa, Mbulu, Babati)
    • Field days: Nanenane show (About 5000 visitors)
    • 1. Assessment of opportunity and constraints in the Crop-Livestock systems – postharvest issues: Dodoma and ManyaraName of the district Total Number of individuals covered8 villages of Kondoa district-Dodoma Men WomenRegion; and 6 villages of Babati Focus group discussion 270 161 109district-Manyara Region Household survey 333 163 170 603 324 279
    • Harvesting:Most of the crops are harvested from March to September Storage of crops will be needed for 6-12 months
    • Postharvest activities WinnowingStorage Storage Drying
    • Opportunity for food storage and Constraints to adequate food storage
    • 2.1.1 Establish village-level pilot processing centers for processing,storage and preservation of grains, legumes and horticulture crops and livestock productsHypothesis: Mechanized technologies for drying, threshing of maize, millet and sorghum will reduce labor inputs, reduce processing time, and increase on-farm production Experimental locations: 4 villages suitable for the establishment of the pilot processing, storage and preservation of grains; 4 villages marked as control where there will not be processing activities. 1. Mamire- BENKI NAFAKA 2. Soya- UMOJA 3. Mondo-  WAZALISHAJI  MBEGU  MONDO” (KIWAMBENO). 4. Gedemar- Kikundi cha Kuhifadhi na  Kusindika Vyakula
    • Activity 3.1.Train farmers/households in novel processing and preservation of locally produced grains, legumes, horticulture crops District Village Type of technology  Number of   Potential users  demonstrated Farmers  of technology Male  Female Kondoa &  Mondo,  Mechanized shelling of  67 82,220 8,634 Babati Soya,  sorghum & maize Mamire &  Improved storage of grains 104 Gedemar Improved grain drying of  47 grains Milk-Cream separation 57Demonstrations on 4 improved postharvest technologies were carried out in four villages of Kondoa, Dodoma and in other two villages of Babati, Manyara.
    • Plan for the future1. Continue with storage trials/demos2. Information and awareness creation3. Training on storage and processing4. Dissemination of PH technologies5. Establishment of pilot centres for PH activities
