concerns for post-harvest food loss reduction have arisen. The United Nations predicts that billion tons of food is lost globally every year (Gustavsson et al., ). Tropical and subtropical fruits are popular products, but are often highly perishable and need to be transported long distances for sale. The four volumes of Postharvest biology and technology of tropical fruits review essential aspects of postharvest biology, postharvest technologies, handling and processing technologies for both well-known.

  “Post-harvest losses” in the PHL system refer to the quantitative and qualitative loss of food in various post-harvest operations. “Food loss” is defined too as food available for human consumption, but not consumed. Limiting post-harvest losses (PHL) is a priority area of cooperation between FAO and world development banks. Book: Manual on the prevention of post-harvest grain losses. pp pp. Abstract: This manual contains 11 chapters relevant to the prevention of postharvest grain grain Subject Category: Commodities and Products.

Tackling post harvest loss in Ghana: Cost-effectiveness of technologies. Postharvest Loss (PHL) refers to measurable quality and quantity loss of food in the postharvest system. The postharvest system consists of inter-connected stages, from the act of harvest, to crop processing, storage, marketing and transportation, to t.

In the literature, the domain is mostly referred to as “post-harvest food losses”, “post harvest food losses”, or “postharvest food losses”. The World Resources Institute (WRI), however, refers to it as “food loss and waste” (FLW). In dealing with the domain, terminology has been a.

While products such as bananas, pineapples, kiwifruit and citrus have long been available to consumers in temperate zones, new fruits such as lychee, longan, carambola, and mangosteen are now also entering the market.

Confirmation of the health benefits of tropical and subtropical fruit may also promote consumption further. Tropical and subtropical fruits are particularly vulnerable to.

Post-harvest losses can occur during any of the various stages of post-production system. The main causes of rice losses in post-harvest operations include: delayed harvesting and threshing, heavy.

Drying, processing and storage were found to be the key stages where these losses occur. This poster outlines some post-harvest loss reduction technologies validated within the Africa RISING program namely; improved grain drying, threshing, and storage as a package, and gives evidence of the potential impact if the technologies are applied at.

Postharvest loss includes the food loss across the food supply chain from harvesting of crop until its consumption [].The losses can broadly be categorized as weight loss due to spoilage, quality loss, nutritional loss, seed viability loss, and commercial loss [].Magnitude of postharvest losses in the food supply chain vary greatly among different crops, areas, and economies.

Estimated losses (weight and quality) from the postharvest chain for rice in south Asia (After Hodges et al. While fulfilling the food demand of an increasing population remains a major global concern, more than one-third of food is lost or wasted in postharvest operations.

Reducing the postharvest losses, especially in developing countries, could be a sustainable solution to increase food availability, reduce pressure on natural resources, eliminate hunger and improve farmers’ livelihoods. Oklahoma is the second largest producer of winter wheat in the U.S.

(NASS ). Stored product losses resulting from insect infestation are extensive and are usually associated with the occurrence of internal feeders such as lesser grain borer (Rhyzopertha dominica Fabricious) (Coleoptera: Bostrichidae) and rice weevils (Sitophilus oryzae Linnaeus) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae).

One of the key constraints to improving food and nutritional security in Africa is the poor post-harvest management that leads to between 14 % and 36 % loss of maize grains, thereby aggravating hunger. Post-harvest losses contribute to high food prices by removing part of.Chapter 3 Basic principles of post-harvest technology of perishable food crop products: and the magnitude of post-harvest losses.
