A farmer demonstrates the shelling technology that helps reduce aflatoxin contamination and shelling time in order to free up more time and improve groundnut quality As part of the impact assessment being conducted by USAID’s Southern Africa Trade Hub on aflatoxin management strategies that have been implemented in the past five years, four focus group interviews were carried out in Nampula province in Mozambique from December 7-8, 2015. 

The impact assessment also covers Zambia and Malawi and aims to produce information that will guide future interventions by analyzing current successes and challenges that need to be addressed.

The assessment revealed that participants were committed and serious about aflatoxin management and require additional training. Mozambican farmers indicated that they would appreciate visual training material better suited to their level of literacy as well as longer training sessions
