Maize or corn is grown mainly with traditional technologies in nearly every country in Africa. Given the population growth in Africa and the need to increase the food supply, maize is a very important food crop. 

Rice, wheat, and maize provided more than 30% of the food calories for over 4.5 billion people in 94 developing countries throughout the world. 

The International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center or CIMMYT created the Drought Tolerant Maize for Africa or DTMA project in 2006. The goal of the DTMA project is to lessen the effects of drought on maize production in sub-Saharan Africa.
