A farmer in Chwele, Kenya shells maize using a small metal device called a maize sheller. As she slides the sheller down the maize cob, the kernels separate from the cob. This makes it easier for farmers to dry and store their harvest. Credit: Dominic Ochola Photo courtesy of the One Acre Fund blog.
