French term or phrase:ecarts de tris
Un 1er recensement des écarts de tri disponibles (non ou faiblement valorisés à date) fait état d’un minimum de 3000 tonnes de légumes variés sur une zone de circonférence 1h de camion:
I do not understand what 'ecarts de tri' means on its own and in this phrase, is it synonymous with 'ecarts de production'-output gap?? Thanks for your help! Answer asap!
Explanation: It is very difficult to distinguish between the seeds and agricultural techniques used in oil-mill groundnut and CG, since these two activities use the same kinds of both. It is the quality of grains (size, grade, and
level of contamination) that determines the final destination of output. Groundnut crops are submitted to a process of selection, particularly a Hand Picking Selection (HPS), through which the share of output that
meets certain criteria as regards size and level of aflatoxin contamination, is qualified CG and exported as such. The remainder (écarts de tri) is sent for trituration in oil mills.
