Food Security

Food security is one of my specific research interests and has formed my masters dissertation.

My topic of focus is food loss on smallholder farms in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), which consists of some of the highest post-harvest losses (PHL) in the world.

Most of these losses can be reduced by effective knowledge/technology distribution, and investment in resistant seed strains.

Other focuses are: population increase, decreasing total loss and increasing yield.

Here are some interesting articles surrounding food security, food loss, agricultural governance, farming and similar topics.
