This manual deals with problems concerning losses of stored products by storage pests: moulds (fungi), insects and rodents. It is targeted at those who are involved with providing information on storage to farmers and co-operatives. The Agrodok describes the main storage pests and gives explanations of preventive and protective practices. Special attention is given to the use of natural materials in protecting storage products. You will also find some information on chemical treatment of stored products against pests. Another title in the Agrodok series (No. 31): “The storage of tropical agricultural products”, is another useful book about storage. The two Agrodoks are complementary.
