This event is hosted by the BMGF and USAID-funded AflaSTOP program, which is addressing aflatoxin in post-harvest storage. AflaSTOP established that hermetic storage arrests aflatoxin growth; the program also designed – and is now piloting - the EasyDry500 as part of its aim to develop and commercialize storage and drying technologies.
