Malt is the key ingredient in beer that provides the starch and enzymes necessary to produce
the fermentable sugars which yeast then turn into alcohol. Malt also provides the color and
flavor compounds which contribute to the final character of beer.

Quality-Factors-in-Malting-Barley-May-2010.jpg

QUALITY FACTORS IN MALTING BARLEY
Malting barley is barley that will produce high quality malt. It is a specialty crop
for which a premium price is paid by domestic maltsters and exporters.
Quality requirements for malting barley are reasonably strict and are directly
related to processing efficiency and product quality in the malting and brewing
industries. Many of the characteristics required are under the control of the
producer. Others are...

Postharvest_Loss_in_Africa_What_Do_Farmers_Say.jpg

3ResearchDigestWorld Bank
Global estimates of postharvest
food losses are alarmingly high. But
what do farmers say about their own
losses?
The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimates that 32 percent of global food
production is lost after harvest—and
up to 37 percent in Sub-Saharan
Africa. Why have farmers “tolerated”
such losses, and why has the inter-
national community not acted more
forcefully to reduce them? One answer
holds that...

Grain crop drying, handling and storage
IntroductIon
Although in many parts of Africa certain crops can be
produced throughout the year, the major food crops
such as cereal grains and tubers, including potatoes,
are normally seasonal crops. Consequently the food
produced in one harvest period, which may last for only
a few weeks, must be stored for gradual consumption
until the next harvest, and seed must be held for the
next...

53. Using chemical pesticides safely: The case of Fall armyworm in Ethiopia


20177800461.jpg

KNOWLEDGE FOR LIFE
Fall armyworm (Spodoptera
frugiperda) is a new pest in
Africa, attacking maize, but can
also feed on other crops.
The caterpillars are mainly found
feeding on young maize plants,
but they can also attack a range
of other crops including millet,
sorghum, rice, wheat, sugar
cane and vegetables.
Leaf damage is usually
characterized by ragged
feeding, and moist sawdust-like
frass near the funnel and upper
leaves. Early feeding...
