APHLIS offers its users a unique service enabling them to understand postharvest losses of cereals in Sub-Saharan Africa. They can obtain loss estimates by province for seven cereals and there is also a downloadable calculator so that they can make their own estimates at other geographical scales. There is also information provided for those interested in collecting new loss data and in reducing postharvest losses.
To understand more about how APHLIS works consult the Understanding APHLIS manual. For a comprehensive account of APHLIS, users can also download the latest full length manual published by the European Commission at the end of 2014, entitled APHLIS – postharvest cereal losses in Sub-Saharan Africa, their estimation, assessment and reduction.
