Advances in postharvest management of cereals and grains (Hardback)

£150.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Post-harvest losses of cereals and other grains, whether from spoilage microorganisms or insect pests, remain a significant issue in both the developed and developing world. Challenges include restrictions on chemicals for decontamination and increasing levels of insect resistance. This collection reviews the wealth of research addressing those challenges.



Part 1 of this collection assesses the causes of postharvest losses from fungal contamination, insect and rodent pests. Part 2 reviews advances in bulk and other storage technologies, including developments in detection as well as management of insect pests using techniques such as fumigation, controlled atmospheres, biopesticides and biocontrol techniques as well as irradiation.



The book also reviews advances in the detection and control of fungal contamination together with ways of monitoring the quality of stored cereal grains.

Dr Dirk Maier is a Professor and Postharvest Engineer at Iowa State University, USA. Professor Maier is the Founding Director of the USAID-funded Feed the Future Innovation Lab for the Reduction of Post-harvest Loss. He leads a global partnership for innovation in post-harvest loss and food waste reduction aimed at sustainably providing safe and nutritious food for a growing world population. Professor Maier has received a number of awards and published widely on postharvest management of cereals, with a particular focus on loss prevention and reduction.

Prof. Magan completed his BSc (Hons) Botany and MSc (Plant Pathology) at Exeter University. He completed his PhD at Rothamsted Research (external student Reading University) in 1982. He was awarded his DSc in 2013 for his work on mycotoxins in food chains. He holds the Chair in Applied Mycology at Cranfield University. He has carried out research on food security/safety and spoilage fungi for 35+ years. Current research includes molecular ecology and ecophysiology of spoilage and mycotoxigenic fungi in food production systems, especially the impact of climate change factors on mycotoxins in staple commodities and the development of minimisation and prevention strategies. These include physical approaches to minimising mycotoxin contamination and ecophysiology of biological control agents for improved efficacy against pests/fungal diseases. He has published widely in these research areas with 300+ peer-reviewed Journal papers. He has an H-index of 56 (Scopus) and 73 (Google scholar).
