Maize is the global leading cereal in terms of production, planted on over 184 million hectares globally with 1,016 million metric tonnes. Kenya has the potential to be self-reliant and can produce surplus to export to other countries. Specifically, the country has the comparative advantage of producing maize compared to other maize producing countries particularly her neighbours, but her maize production is not adequate to feed the population and the imports of maize to bridge the deficit is undermining the achievement of the national agenda under the Kenya Vision 2030.
