Training course in grain quality evaluation

A basic course in rice grain quality evaluation was conducted from 7 to 9 December for English-speaking countries and from 12 to 14 December for French-speaking countries in Cotonou. Participants from 12 countries involved in the STRASA project attended. The course, which included both theory and practical sessions, offered an opportunity for the participants to learn about the basics of assessing the quality of rice grain and preferences for grain quality in their respective countries, and to evaluate the grain quality of rice samples brought from their respective countries.
