ABOUT THIS PROJECT
Biotic threats are said to account for an estimated 30 per cent of post-harvest losses across the world. The rate of loss is exceptionally high in sub-Saharan Africa due to the pervasiveness of many diseases caused by local and trans-boundary pests. Recently, export of fruits from Ghana was been banned from major international markets due to the negative impact of fruit flies and other plant pests and diseases. Objectives of the Project are to facilitate information exchange among farmers, entomology consultants, extension officers and researchers on best farming practices and determine the extent to which they are used in crop production, especially in pest management.
