Abstract

Much is written about the likely effects of climate change on crop production. However, the discussion typically stops short of how climate change will continue to exert its influence on the increasingly valuable harvest as it is carried home from the field, dried, threshed, protected against storage insect pests, stored, processed, transported, consumed and/ or marketed.

This article shares highlights from the authors’ recent review of postharvest agriculture in changing climates, which is shortly to be published as an NRI working paper. It has a particular focus on durable cereal crops in the smallholder farmer context in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), revealing important insights into the bearing of postharvest agriculture on global concerns such as food security.
