New! GFMT article: Pest control across the supply chain

These series of two articles focuses on the importance of pest control.

The first article looks at pests in stored grains. Protecting grain and silos from insect infection is an important factor to be aware of. “Clearly millers want high quality, consistent grain,” says Martin Savage, trade policy manager, National Association for British and Irish Millers (nabim), United Kingdom, but this is not always acknowledged by farmers.

We then turn our attention to grains in transit. Mike Kelly, Acheta, United Kingdom explores the  issues surrounding fumigation at ports.

Promoting good grain store practices
