Maize farming, also known as corn farming, is one of the most viable agricultural business in Africa. It is consumed in various forms and feeds over 500 million Africans yearly.

According to a research carried out by the IITA, over 800 million tonnes of maize is produced yearly, with Africa accounting for only about 6.5% of this figure. This is extremely low considering the fact that America produced about 32% of the world’s total maize crops grown in 2010 alone, followed by China.

Of the percentage produced in Africa, Nigeria is the largest producer with about 8 million tonnes of maize produced yearly in the country, followed by South Africa, Tanzania, Kenya, and Uganda.

The small percentage Africa has in the worldwide production of the maize crop shows there’s still an abundant opportunity for maize cultivation on the continent.
