2. Maize in the Developing World About 73 per cent of 153million ha of maize areaworldwide in 2010 waslocated in the developingworld. Together with rice and wheat,maize provides at least 30%of the food calories to morethan 4.5 billion people in 94developing countries. Preferred staple food to 900million poor people (< 2 USDper day) 3.

Maize becomes No.1 crop in China since 2007 Chinese maize belt Each dot equals 50,000 ha Source: National Bureau of Statistics, 2010 5. The ever increasing demand During 2003-08, maizeproduction increased annuallyby 6.0% in Asia, as compared to5.0% in Latin America, and2.3% in sub-Saharan Africa.Between now and 2050, thedemand for maize in the Maize consumption in Chinadeveloping world will double,and by 2025 maize will havebecome the crop with the highestproduction in the developingworld (~490-500 mmt)! 6. Drivers for maize demand in AsiaMaize use for feed in the seven major Asian countries (China,India, Indonesia, Nepal, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam)has more than tripled from 29 m t in 1980 to 109 m t in 2000! 7.

Volatility of Maize PricesMaize imports for developing countryeconomies will increase 24% by 2050 equalling USD 30 billion. 10. Food security is at risk due to climate change....In order to meetglobal demands,we will need60-70% more foodby 2050. 11. Drought => large annual yield fluctuations inboth sub-Saharan Africa and Asia6.005.00Grain yield (t ha )4.00- 1965 1970 1975 1980 1985 1990 1995 2000 2005 2010 YearAlleviating the effects of drought alone could increase average maizeyields by 35% across Asia-7 (excluding China), and by 28% in SouthwestChina (Gerpacio and Pingali, 2007). 12. Heat stress isbecoming anincreasing reality,coupled withdrought stress, inmany maizegrowing regions inAsia 13. Excess water a recurring theme in some regions Episodes of intense rainfall, leading to flooding 20 million ha affected in South and Southeast AsiaWaterlogging-prone areas in South & SE Asia 14.

Stress seldom comes alone.Drought &Heat StressStressed plants Reduced yields Ear rots low qualityMycotoxins 16. Mycotoxin contamination A serious problem in manymaize-growing countries inAsia, Africa and LatinAmerica, affecting long-termhealth of humans andanimals, trade and exportmarkets.
