This report gives results of the 2009 regional trials coordinated by CIMMYT in eastern and southern Africa. The trials evaluated elite pre-release and released maize germplasm supplied by CIMMYT, National Agricultural Research Programs, and private seed companies from the region. CIMMYT received the germplasm, grouped it according to vigor and maturity, and formed six replicated trials. These results are useful for National Agricultural Research Programs, private seed companies and seed distributing agencies.

Many poor and marginalized farmers in eastern and southern Africa depend on maize for their livelihoods. Isolated from main market centers, these smallholder farmers recycle their seed, growing the same low-yielding varieties they have grown for years–varieties that barely yield enough for the farming family to survive. Nevertheless, there is hope for improvement: newer and better seed varieties can increase maize yields and withstand harsh conditions, such as drought. This brief covers the constraints in release of varieties, trade-related challenges, and offers suggestions for solutions. For further information, contact Augustine Langyintuo (alangyintuo@agra-alliance.org).
