Based on the need to understand how and when DTM is used by farmers, the number of users over time, the provision of information for policy reform, as well as the need to measure impact, a formal household survey of resource-poor farmers was conducted during the 2005–2006 production periods. The survey was targeted at major maize producing areas that were frequently at drought risk. The general objective of the household survey was to collect baseline data on farm households and use them to construct indicators for measuring changes in the adoption of improved maize varieties and the impact on adopting households in selected locations.

The purpose of the study is to provide both quantitative and qualitative feedback from farmers to researchers and to the B&MGF on the impact that improved maize varieties developed in the past have had upon the livelihoods of households and to provide a detailed database for the projection of expected outcomes with the deployment of new drought tolerant maize varieties under the B&MGF drought tolerant maize 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.
