Farmer’s Stories

Veronica Mwanza portrait photo

Previously, I would treat my grain with chemicals and pack in gunny bags, but it was not a successful storage method because of insect attacks. PICS bags have changed all that.

Our grain would get damaged and we would incur losses. But now with these PICS bags, our grain now lasts longer, and our money is safe.

The main challenge I have always faced in the business is the menace of weevils attacking and spoiling my peas whenever they are in store. Now with PICS bags, the peas look and smell fresh, as if they have just been brought from the farm. They are very effective; they keep your peas in good shape even after long storage.
