Dry the beans immediately under the sun for 3-5 days to avoid moulding and for easy threshing.
Thresh using proper machinery or by beating in open air on a tarpaulin or in a sack to avoid grain scattering and contamination.
Winnow & clean to remove straw, stones, dirt, animal droppings & discoloured grains.
Dry again. Spread the threshed seed under the sun for 3-5 days under the sun to fully dry to the required moisture content. Do this to avoid mould during storage.
Grade your grain according to size and colour for better prices. Ensure seed of the same sizes. Do not mix different varieties.
Pack the beans in sacks and store on raised pallets.
Use Actelic Super Dust at 50g for 90kg of seed before storing your beans. This will protect the beans from storage pests. Put the seeds on a clean surface and spread dust over seed and gently mix them. Dust again after every 6 months.
Transport your produce well and minimize loss from spillage.
Reducing post-harvest losses means more beans for you to sell at market, and more money for you and your business.
