This study addresses various indigenous technology and knowledge-based food processing and storage methods used by rural women farming in Tanzania, focusing on the ways these can be improved for higher incomes. Primary data collected in June from small-scale women farming in Dodoma, Iringa, and Mbeya were analyzed with secondary data in order to meet the study objectives. The storage infrastructure is characterized by traditional methods, and sacks are the most widely used storage vessel. Farmers store the food crops for food security and to sell at a higher price later.

The present study evaluated plastic and steel bins as bulk storage structures for protection of maize against infestation by insect pests in Ghana. The study which spanned the period February to January was undertaken in Ejura, located in the Middle Belt of the country. Untreated maize pre-disinfested with a solar biomass hybrid dryer was stored in either a 7-MT white plastic bin or a 7-MT green plastic bin or a 6-MT Kikapu steel bin as experimental treatments. Six 50 kg polypropylene PP bags filled with maize treated with Betallic Super 80 g pirimiphos-methyl and 15 g permethrin per liter as an emulsifiable concentrate EC Check and six 50 kg PP bags filled with untreated maize Control were also maintained. The study was arranged in a completely randomized design. Monthly data on moisture content MC , insect numbers and damage and mycotoxin levels aflatoxin and fumonisin of maize were taken. The dominant insect pest species collected were Sitophilus zeamais , Cryptolestes ferrugineus , Cathartus quadricollis and Tribolium castaneum.
This paper aims to review the current status of wheat production, farming systems, production constraints and wheat demand-supply chain analysis; the role of international and national breeding programs and their approaches in wheat genetic improvement including targeting mega environments, shuttle breeding, doubled haploids, marker-assisted selection and key location phenotyping; and future prospects and opportunities of wheat production in Sub Saharan Africa SSA. Though traditionally wheat was not the leading staple crop in SSA, it is becoming an important food crop because of rapid population growth associated with increased urbanization and change in food preference for easy and fast food such as bread, biscuits, pasta, noodles and porridge. In , total wheat consumption in SSA reached 25 million tons with import accounting for Furthermore, increased cost of production, growing populations, increased rural-urban migration, low public and private investments, weak extension systems and policies, and low adoption rates of new technologies remain to be major challenges for wheat production in SSA. Wheat breeding in SSA is dominantly carried out by National Agricultural Research Systems, in partnership with the international research centers [International center for improvement of maize and wheat CIMMYT and International center for agricultural research in the dry areas ICARDA ], to develop high yielding and widely adapted wheat genotypes with increased water-use efficiency, heat tolerance and resistance to major diseases and pests.
