Observations and Emerging Lessons from the 1998/99 High-Input Maize Program in Nampula Province, Mozambique

During 1998/99, MARD/MSU researchers followed the progress of the improved maize program in five CLUSA-assisted associations located in two different agroecological zones of Nampula Province. The objective of this study was to assess how greater involvement of farmer associations in maize intensification affects marketing costs and extension effectiveness. This preliminary report summarizes the observations on the 1998/99 production season and part of the 1999/00 marketing season, based on analysis of maize yield data and informal group interviews with participating farmer associations carried out in March and November 1999. It also discusses some of the preliminary conclusions that are emerging from the broader three-year maize intensification study.
