The Storage and Proper Post-Harvest Improvements for Resource Efficiency (SAPPHIRE) program is working to increase incomes for 20,000 smallholder maize and rice farmers in the Mbeya Region. Better post-harvest handling will increase the value of grain crops, and improved access to storage will reduce losses.
