What's wrong
Growing population and food insecurity in SSA means the region needs a radical non-conventional approach to sustainably boost food crop production
30%The average maize yield in SSA is about a third (1.85 Mt/ha) of the global yield rate (5.8 Mt/ha).
300 millionthe number of people in Sub-Saharan Africa living in hunger as at 2019.
+$2B/yearSSA’s annual expenditure on food imports to make up for the food demand deficit.
x3the demand for food crops in SSA is predicted to triple by 2050 due to population growth.
What could be the cause?
“late-emerging maize plants lose 626 Kg per acre for every single day of delayed emergence”~ FarmProgress (2019)
“Research on maize yield improvement by Mississippi State University proved that seeding with a precision seeder boosts maize yield by 152.4 Kg per acre”.
90%+of food crop production processes are done with manual labor. Thinning farming population is greatly affecting agriculture intensity in SSA
60%+grain crop yield loss to seed spacing and uniform planting depth inefficiencies associated with manual planting.
