          Abstract

          In this study, 20 local artisans were trained on the fabrication of improved rice parboiling technology. 100 women and 50 men were trained on the use of the improved parboiling technology. Participants were selected from female and male farmers from different farmer-based organizations. The scaling-out of this technology to the rice sector development hubs in Sierra Leone will reduce the constraints related to the traditional parboiling process and improve the productivity and quality of the parboil rice in conformity with the market demand. It will also help to increase the income of the actors along the rice value chain.
