  • POST HARVEST LOSS INFORMATION SYSTEM FOR BETTER ESTIMATES OF FOOD AVAILABILITY

    Crop production figures are normally adjusted for post harvest (PH) loss in order to obtain the estimates of food availability on which any relief actions are based. To date, the origin and justification of figures used to make adjustments for PH losses have not been well founded. To remedy this situation, MARS-Food Sec, in association with AIDCO and FAO, has commissioned a project to obtain more realistic figures for the PH losses of cereal grains.
