Post-harvest problems of non-grain staples

Acta Horticulturae (53): 23-33
Post-harvest problems of non-grain staples
The tropical staple foods other than grains, usually derived from relatively small-scale horticultural production systems, are much more important, especially in humid tropical ecosystems, than is generally appreciated, and provide staple food for several hundred million people. These non-grain staples include the tropical root crops, cassava, yams, potatoes, cocoyam and sweet potatoes. Post-harvest losses in these crop products have been estimated at around 25%.
