Senegal incurs 25 percent crop losses due to lack of storage infrastructure

Every year, Senegal faces crop losses of 25 percent due to lack of storage infrastructure. The Agricultural and Rural Prospective Initiative (IPAR) and the Market Regulation Agency (ARM) stated in a survey: “… The deficiencies of storage and conservation devices mean that up to 25 percent of crop losses are recorded each year, which means that almost all (or a major part) of imports can be avoided.”

To combat this situation, researchers recommend equipping farmers’ organisations with cold rooms to ensure that products are well preserved over a long period of time.

The survey also recommended diversifying the range of products marketed by the producers at the platforms (tomatoes, cabbage, aubergine, etc.), ensuring that the prices set by ARM are scrupulously respected at all platforms. They should also guarantee hassle-free tax equity and facilitate user access to MFIs and financial institutions with the signing of agreements.
