This report examines the results of the AgResults Kenya On-Farm Storage Challenge Project – a Tanager-supported project that challenged Kenyan companies to create on-farm grain storage devices for smallholder farmers in Kenya. As summarized in this report, these devices allowed farmers to protect upwards of 413,265 MT of grain from marauding pests. The farmers and their families will now have access to pesticide-free grain available for household consumption. The companies that created the storage devices were able to establish market linkages which ultimately will make these grain storage devices available to more farmers in Kenya.
