Post-harvest losses include all losses of agricultural products, mainly food, along the agricultural value chain from cultivation in the fields to the consumer’s plate. Post-harvest activities include the harvest itself, handling, storage, processing, packaging, transport, handling and distribution, and marketing.

In Haiti, it is a fact that the losses of agricultural products constitute a major and crucial problem in the post-harvest chain. These losses can be caused by a variety of factors, ranging from growing conditions to handling at the retail level. Not only are the losses clearly a waste of food, but they also represent a parallel loss of human effort, agricultural inputs, livelihoods, investments and scarce resources like water.

At the Agricultural Forum this Saturday, PROMODEV will have as a guest an expert in post-harvest technology who will talk to us about the theme: « Importance of post-harvest technology in Haiti: what are the mechanisms of prevention versus opportunities ”?
