Maize is one of the major food staples in sub-Saharan Africa (Mellor et a. 1987), with 57 million tons produced on about 30 million ha in the year 2010 (FAOSTAT, 2010;Nweke, 2005). Most of it is grown for human consumption (Pingali, 2001), and provides food and income for more than 300 million smallholder farmers (La Rovere et a. 2010).
