Abstract: The Africa Maize Stress (AMS) Project delivers seed and knowledge that help maize farmers across Africa overcome some of their worst problems. For many of these farmers, a lost maize crop represents hunger and lost livelihoods. In East Africa, maize dominates the diets of rural and urban poor. Per capita consumption ranges from nearly 30 kg/year in Uganda to over 120 kg/year in Tanzania, providing a major portion of calories. Demand for maize in West and Central Africa is increasing rapidly; in many savanna areas maize has replaced traditional cereals and serves as both a food and cash crop.
