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.
