Abstract

A study of farm level storage losses in the Eastern Hills of Nepal, between May 1979 and June 1980, in a year affected by drought, showed that farm level storage losses (approximately 5%) were lower than previously reported (10-30%). In these circumstances, programmes to reduce losses by introducing new storage structures and pesticides, even if practicable, were shown to be unjustifiable but the need for further studies with particular regard to possible increases in production is indicated.
