Each
activity

Good
Practices

Problems Observed

The use of
priming as
method of
harvesting

No assurance that
harvesters picked
the berries from
identified seed
trees.

Rejected berries due


to mechanical
damage during
pulping

Drying the
seeds under
shade

Storage

Strictly

Seed Sowing

Two days
after
drying

Media Preparation

One
month to
one year
before

Treating the
seeds with
Trichoderma
before the
seeds are
sown
Use of
available
farm
material/was

Uneven drying
because beans were
turned only on the
first day of drying
Unavailability of
sorting tables and
chairs
Maximum storage
period is only three
months because
beans are stored at
ambient
temperature
Unnecessary use of
seedbed mulch

Application

Finished earlier than


expected which lead
to weed growth on

prior to the pricking
process

Use

Seedlings are
underfertilized, nonusage of protective
clothing during
fertilizer application
Poor weed
management
Use of pesticide not
intended for target
