Biological Methods of Cereal Preservation as a way to curbing food insecurity

A cereal is any edible components of the grain (botanically, a type of fruit called a caryopsis) of cultivated grass, composed of the endosperm, germ, and bran. Cereal grains are grown in greater quantities and provide more food energy worldwide than any other type of crop and are therefore staple crops such as buckwheatt (Polygonaceae).For the assurance of future food security,there raise a need to come up with appropriate means that is both cereal grain friendly and farmers friendly.Many scientists have tried to identify some methods to reduce pest infestation but majority have not concentrated to implement the best alternatives to their side effects. The main objective of my research is to come up with biological methods of cereal preservation that targets both the farmers concerning their health, grainā€™s yield and future market as well as students and researchers in their study and research work. This study will involve first pre-study to small scale farming regions and will extend to large scale farming regions. The data will be collected through administering questionnaires to the farmers and collect their views concerning the modern and traditionalpreservation techniques.The data collected will be analyzed by the use of SPSS tool and the results be noted.

please share more details ? Is this a question or ?

Thanks for the concern. This is just a project am currently working on. The above cited is just but a suggested title

if this article is open access please add it as pdf. Otherwise ( if not open access ) please delete it. thank you for understanding.

it is an interrested article, please share more. this method of preservation, is it currently used by the small holders?one side can assure the food security through preservation but what is an impact on food safety and the effect on consumerā€™s health.

Is there any danger in posting that as a text?

Thanks. Am still building on this deeply

pdf is more suitable for reading you know :slight_smile:

Biological preservationā€¦would you mind giving us a birds eye view of how will you achieve that and whatā€™s your target,what variables do you measure so you can monitor it quantitativelyā€¦

hi, wonderful theme for research.
Can you please elaborate on this ā€™ biological methods of cereal preservationā€™.
thank you

'ā€˜Biologicalā€™, involving the biological process such as liquid exudation as a means to extract Eucalyptus treeā€™s oil as well as use of Eucalyptus leaves for preserving the cereals. The scent on the leaves and extracted oil will scare away the pests


How Reliable and practical is that method to compare with existing methodsā€¦
