The survey collected baseline data on farm households to construct indicators for measuring changes in the adoption of improved maize varieties and for assessing impact on adopting households. The main objective of the study was to understand the potential use of the drought tolerant maize (DTM) technology by farmers, provide information for policy makers, and serve as a baseline for measuring impacts of the project.

The main goal of this study is to characterize maize production, consumption and marketing systems at the household level and to analyze determinants and impacts of past adoption of improved maize varieties and the potential adoption of drought tolerant maize in selected locations. Specific objectives are to:

  • Identify farm level constraints hindering access to and uptake of technology.
  • Identify farmers’ perceptions of and preferences for maize variety attributes in relation to drought (e.g., yield increments; food security; reduction in hunger months and cash income).
  • Characterize maize production practices, farmer access to farm inputs, produce markets, extension, credit, NGOs services and gender mainstreaming.
  • Characterize household livelihood strategies, their perception of risks and threats, and coping strategies.

This report presents the synthesis of household level surveys in five intervention countries (Angola, Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia, and Zimbabwe) of the Drought Tolerant Maize for Africa (DTMA) project designed and implemented by the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT), International Institute for Tropical Agriculture (IITA) and national research and extension institutions in 13 countries of Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). In each of the study countries, two districts were randomly selected provided that the districts fall in predetermined categories (20-40%) of probability of failed season (PFS). A total sample of 1108 households was randomly drawn with sample sizes varying country to country. The report has different sections that focus, in order, on description of the sample households, extent and determinants of poverty and inequality among the sample population, characteristics of maize production, perception and management of drought risk, and determinants of likelihood and intensity of adoption of improved maize varieties.
