Maize Intensification in Mozambique: Helping smallholder farmers increase maize production

This leaflet is about the Maize Intensification in Mozambique (MIM) project which was implemented by the International Fertilizer Development Center (IFDC) from 2008-2012, with support from the International Fertilizer Industry Association (IFA), the International Plant Nutrition Institute (IPNI), the International Potash Institute (IPI) and The Sulfur Institute (TSI). The goal of the project was to increase the income and improve the livelihoods of smallholder farmers in Mozambique through intensified maize production. The project was implemented in Manica, Nampula, Sofala and Zambezia provinces in the 2008-09 season, and in Manica, Sofala and Tete provinces in subsequent seasons.

Primary project activities consisted of:

  • Establishment of demonstration fields with farmer groups.
  • Field days to make farmers aware of yield-increasing technologies.
  • Training of agro-dealers in the vicinity of farmer groups to increase the availability of inputs (seeds, fertilizers and crop protection products).
