Zambia, Chimpili, 11 October 2015  In Zambia, the smallholder farmers of Chimpili Cooperative are benefiting from joint support from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and the World Food Programme (WFP). With comprehensive supply-side support, improved infrastructure and market access, cooperative members are now growing sustainable businesses.   Harriet Chabala has increased her production of beans by 50 percent over the last two years. Based on her entrepreneurial skills and consistent supply to WFP for the last three marketing seasons, she received an equipment loan from the cooperative for a tricycle. The tricycle can navigate poor quality roads, enabling Harriet to provide transport services to move crops, inputs and people to and from towns and markets.   In the photo: Harriet Chabala poses with the tricycle she acquired with a loan from Chimpili Cooperative.   Photo: WFP/Evin Joyce

Zambia, 8 November 2016
 Cowpeas are notoriously vulnerable to infestation by insects called weevils. Weevils lay their eggs on cowpeas at the time of harvest. These eggs hatch as larvae and then burrow inside the cowpea. They emerge as adults one month later (usually when the crop is in storage) and reproduce. As the cycle repeats itself, thousands of the insects can be found in a single bag of cowpeas, making them unfit for human consumption. 

Purdue Improved Crop Storage (PICS) bags are a simple and low-cost method of reducing post-harvest cowpea losses due to bruchid infestations in west and central Africa, helping smallholder farmers.
