Aflasafe is very quick and easy to use. Apply the product once to your growing crop, and it will protect your harvest all the way until it is eaten.
You should apply about 10 kg of Aflasafe per hectare by hand broadcasting, i.e. throwing handfuls over the surface of the field, around 2–3 weeks before crop flowering. The only tricky part is knowing when flowering is due. You need to be familiar with the seed variety that you are growing, or seek guidance from your seed supplier or Aflasafe distributor. Exact timings for Aflasafe application also depend on your location.
Although the general principles for using Aflasafe do not vary much from place to place, we are in the process of preparing country-specific how-to guides for farmers wherever Aflasafe is available, as both videos and leaflets, in the languages spoken locally. For a fully in-depth look at using Aflasafe we offer a comprehensive training manual (currently available for West Africa and Kenya). Full information on how to use the product is also printed on all Aflasafe packaging.
