Author(s):Brockamp, Alex

Abstract:Post Harvest Loss (PHL) is a worldwide problem that hurts both producers and consumers. Although PHL solutions are simple, they are not easy to implement. Because the causes of PHL are so varied and diverse, the solutions themselves must also be varied and diverse. A blanket solution will not work, and real changes will only happen when scientists, policy makers and community leaders come together. Educating producers and consumers alike will make a huge difference in reducing PHL. When PHL is reduced, less food will be wasted and the overall quality of life can be improved for people around the world.
