Rice that has been dried and stored through a complete season in RCL facilities is being moved to bunkers (see Chapter 3) for subsequent storage in order to free up drying facilities. Bunkers are lower performance stores but provide acceptable facilities for dry, cool grain, and aerating bunkers of rice that are not completely dry and cool is being considered for the future. As an alternative, the storage of uncooled rice in facilities sufficiently airtight to allow phosphine fumigation is currently under investigation.

Without ready access to markets, maize production in some areas declined, exacerbated by the lack of inputs or their high cost (World Bank 2000). In recent years, maize has been transported from surplus districts to neighbouring deficit districts and central government has encouraged farmers in the remoter areas of Rukwa and Mbeya to export maize to Malawi, Zambia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (SADC 2002). Liberalisation of grain markets has increased the importance of on-farm storage.
