In order to clarify the negative financial impact of shrinkage, we have created a simple tool that anyone can use to calculate the impact on their own situation

What are the consequences of a 25% or more harvest loss?

Rustic onion storage in Sokoto, Nigeria. They struggle with losses of up to 60% here.

But the good news is that during the second halve of 2018, the IFDC/2SCALE project is collaborating with Tays Foods Limited (TFL) in Nigeria and the World Vegetable Center to work with onion farmers, to start building an improved onion storage facility in Sokoto

The harvest laying in the field (rustic storage in Argentina): at least 25% will be lost.

Rustic storage is better than no storage at all, but it has the following problems: 1. There is insufficient ventilation, 2. The temperature varies from day to night, which is not suitable, 3. The light changes constantly.

This shrinkage results in a great deal of money down the drain. The production cost per kilo sold rises by 25%, and the sales margin decreases by even more, and this can even result in a net loss. In order to clarify the negative financial impact of shrinkage, or the loss of an uncontrolled harvest (known in Argentina as "rustic storage"), we have created a simple tool so that anyone can calculate the impact on their own situation.

Versatility and surprising results.

This tool doesn't just show you the financial effect of different levels of shrinkage, but it also shows you the effect of different production costs. You can also input your production costs per hectare, for instance to see the results of buying a better but much more expensive seed. Let's say it costs twice as much per hectare, but increases production by, for instance, 10%. But your cost per kg produced product has gone down.

Take some time to try out this calculator, the results might surprise you.

Once you get used to the calculator, you will come to realise just how versatile it is. Take some time to try it out. Trying it out with the seed example, you will see that there is no such thing as an expensive seed.
