Description: Originating in Central America and introduced into Africa by the Portuguese in the 16th century, maize has become Africa’s most important staple food crop. Both large and small-scale farmers grow maize in various agroecological zones. It is increasingly replacing traditional food crops, including cereals such as sorghum and millet. Maize is so important that in most of sub-Saharan Africa poor maize yields are usually linked to food shortages and famine.
