For fruits,I believe building of cottage industries will help. Communities can come together to build a cottage processing unit,where farmers come to process their fruits into juice ,i believe this will reduce the post harvest loss of fruits greatly. As for vegetables, there are small and affordable dehydrators that farmers can buy to dry their leaves then package for sale,it will not only reduce wastage but also increase the shelf life of the vegetables.
