CORAF

Leading Agricultural Innovation in West and Central Africa

Home Maize Research

Maize is a major staple relished by millions of people in West and Central Africa. But with most of the Sahel region and West Africa facing unpredictable rainfall patterns and severe droughts, farmers and communities across the region are in for tough times.

Over the years CORAF’s work has consisted of trials on high-yielding varieties of maize, conducting baseline studies, post-harvest research on the maize value chain, the impact of adoption of improved maize varieties, etc. As part of CORAF’s work to provide solutions to climate change, CORAF has produced technologies including climate-smart crop varieties such as drought-tolerant maize.
