Feed the Future Innovation Lab for the Reduction of Post-Harvest Loss

 

The Feed the Future Innovation Lab for the Reduction of Post-Harvest Loss (PHLIL) is a strategic, applied, research and education program aimed at improving global food security by reducing post-harvest losses in long-term storage crops, such as grains, oilseeds, legumes, root crops and seeds. The Lab’s efforts are focused in four Feed the Future countries: Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Ghana, and Guatemala. Through collaborations between U.S. universities and local universities, research institutions and other partner organizations, PHLIL is conducting research, testing and outreach related to drying, storage and mycotoxin detection for these key crops. Our work seeks to increase understanding of current post-harvest loss factors and task division in rural communities and households and works toward the development of technologies usable by all household members.
