Maize

 

Maize is one of the main food crops grown in Ghana and the largest staple crop, contributing significantly to consumer diets. It is the number one crop in terms of area planted and accounts for 50-60% of total cereal production. Additionally, maize represents the second largest commodity crop in the country after cocoa. Maize is one of the most important crops for Ghana’s agricultural sector and for food security.

The vast majority of maize is produced by smallholder farmers under rain fed conditions, leading to annual variations. However, overall maize production in the country has remained relatively stable both in terms of area harvested and volume because of reliance on traditional farming methods.

Under traditional production methods and rain fed conditions, yields are well below their attainable levels – maize yields in Ghana average approximately 1.5 metric tons per hectare. However, yields as high as 5.0 – 6.0 metric tons per hectare have been realized by farmers using improved seeds, fertilizer, mechanization and irrigation.
