The survey, using PRA methods, addressed issues concerning three, three-year long Crop Post Harvest Programme (CPHP) funded projects recently implemented by NRI in these regions (the projects commenced in April1996). The three projects being: "The use of plant materials for protecting farm stored grain against insect infestation" (A0493); "Mud silos for the storage of cereals" (A0494),and; "Improvement in the storage and marketing quality of grain legumes" (A0495).
