ADM Institute contributes to new postharvest extension practices book
The ADM Institute staff authored a chapter about the ADMI Village project for a book published in December. The chapter was co-written by ADMI Director Alex Winter-Nelson and staff members Mindy Spencer, Sarah Schwartz, and Ashley Nagele.
Postharvest Extension and Capacity Building for the Developing World, the first book in the World Food Prevention Center book series, focuses on postharvest extension and outreach programs, capacity building, and practical applications for extension professionals and outreach specialists in the field.
The book is divided into four sections: Section I focuses on postharvest loss assessment methods, Section II on capacity building, Sections III on training, and Section IV on postharvest extension models. ADMI’s chapter appears in Section IV.
Other University of Illinois researchers are also featured in the book. Julia Bello-Bravo and Barry Pittendrigh wrote about the Scientific Animations Without Borders (SAWBO) program in Section III. ADMI was an early supporter of the SAWBO series. Andrea Bohn, with the INGENAES program at Illinois, partnered with Lola Gaparova to write about the Farmer Advisory Services in Tajikistan program, which appears in Section IV.
The book is now available in hardback or e-book format on the CRC Press website. Click here for more details.
