Genetically modified crops are increasing yield and food security in developed countries, but in Africa, a lack of adoption is limiting success.
The government intervening to ensure food safety will increase awareness among producers and consumers.
Once crops have been harvested, farmers experience wastage and loss of food all over Africa.
Post-harvest management will reduce losses and improve food availability.
The Food and Agriculture organisation estimates that 30 to 40% of total food production is lost before it reaches the market. The losses in Africa are greater and sustainable strategies are needed.
