The same processes of value addition applied to maize are also applicable to other grains grown in the country, such as wheat, barley, finger millet, sorghum, and rapoko.Traditionally, grain was ground using various forms of grinding stones, before the arrival of the motorised grinding mill, and eventually the automated milling plants. Nowadays, millers in the country operate at small-scale (grain cleaners and grinding mills) and commercial (milling plants complete with automated milling and packing units).

At iQFarmer, it is our intention to unlock the value in all or most farm operations, and in grain milling, we intend to teach grain farmers and other players of ways to make the most money out of their grain ventures. It is not just growing grain crops that will give money-more money will be made by those who decide to add value to their harvests and move forward, closer to the consumers who buy the products of grain value addition.

The iQFarmer Grain Processing Manual will introduce you to simplified practical and profitable grain value addition through the use of the appropriate system/s, tools and strategies, covering:

  1. Postharvest Management ( Large Grains, Small Grains )
  2. Storage
  3. Cleaning
  4. Conditioning
  5. Gristing
  6. Milling
  7. Value Addition Technologies
  8. Climate Smart Applications
  9. Grain Processing Economics and Entrepreneurship


On iQFarmer you will find cost schedules and manuals on sustainable grain milling systems and applications, from which we hope you will be able to select the most cost-effective solutions and profitable combinations to help you in setting up a profitable agricultural enterprise.
