TAMASA

Taking Maize Agronomy to Scale in Africa (TAMASA) is a 4-year project (November 2014-October 2018) seeking to improve productivity and profitability for small-scale maize farmers in Ethiopia, Tanzania and Nigeria.

The overall purpose of TAMASA is to use innovative approaches to transform agronomy that:

  • Use available geospatial and other data and analytics to map maize areas, soil constraints, and actual and yields at different scale
  • Work with service providers (i.e. input suppliers, government and private research and extension services, agro-dealers, and others) to identify and co-develop systems and applications that transform this data and information to useable products that support their businesses or programs to reach clients more effectively
  • Build capacity in national programs to support and sustain these approaches
