Abstract

This study was conducted to determine the constraints to maintaining good quality grain in store on the farm and to marketing produce surplus to food needs. Two regions were visited, Northern Region, where maize is the main cereal staple, and Upper East, where maize is replaced by millet and sorghum. Farmers and traders were interviewed in groups or individually in both villages and markets.
