    FACTORS AFFECTING ECONOMIC EFFICIENCY IN MAIZE PRODUCTION: THE CASE OF BORICHA WOREDA IN SIDAMA ZONE, SOUTHERN ETHIOPIA Bealu Tukela1, Endrias Geta, 2 and Tadesse Ababu 3 Abstract Maize is an important crop for food security in Ethiopia as a source of both food and Size: KB. Maize is a staple food to a large proportion of people in Kenya Nearly all agricultural households plant maize Small-scale production dominates 70% of total production There has, however, been evidence of stagnation in maize production and productivity Increasing gap between production and consumptionFile Size: KB.

    Effect Of Human Capital On Maize Productivity function displays constant returns to scale in physical capital and labour while holding average attainment constant, we can define a per capita production function that will relate average labour productivity to average schooling and to the stock of capital per : Isaac Nyamekye, Dela-Dem Doe Fiankor, Jonathan Okyere Ntoni. Maize production is growing faster than that of all other cereals, thanks to its growing demand as poultry feed, as well as for human and industrial consumption.

      Over half of Malawi's farming households operate below subsistence. Because of low productivity and small farm size, only 20% of maize farmers produce surplus and sell their product. On-farm storage losses are high. As a result, most households purchase maize at much higher prices when stocks are exhausted, typically during January to by: Maize is a primary staple for 96 per cent of Kenyans, and over 75 per cent of total maize output is produced by smallholder farmers. Use technology to increase maize production in Kenya: Author: Timothy Njagi.

modern approaches of plant breeding and crop management technologies to increase the maize yield need to be developed and disseminated.

There is a need for location-specific maize production technologies, especially for lowland winter maize, marginal upland maize production system, and resource poor farmers.Understanding the genetic variability, heritability and genetic advance of traits in any plant population is an important pre-requisite for breeding program.

The experiment was conducted to assess the magnitude of genetic variability, heritability and genetic advance of 24 maize inbred lines for 16 quantitative traits. The field experiment was conducted during cropping Author: Tadesse Jilo, Leta Tulu, Techale Birhan, Lemi Beksisa.
