SUMMARY

Kenya and Eritrea face considerably reduced yields of respectively -11% and -6% relative to the 5 yr average. In Sudan the central east-west zone is affected, including Darfur. In the regions south of Lake Victoria, yield decreases are expected in the east of Burundi (-10%) and the north of Tanzania (-15%). Normal yields are predicted for Rwanda and south Uganda. Low yields in the north of Tanzania are compensated by high yields in the centre of the country, and therefore at national level maize outputs are slightly above average (2.5%).

SUMMARY

Kenya, Burundi and Sudan face reduced yields of respectively -7%, -3% and -3% relative to the 5 yr average. In Sudan particularly the central east-west zone is affected, including Darfur. In the regions south of Lake Victoria, large yield decreases (-20%) are expected in the east of Burundi and the north of Tanzania. Low yields in the north of Tanzania are compensated by high yields in the centre of the country, and therefore at national level the outputs may be close to average (- 1%). In Rwanda no change to the previous year or the 5 yrs average is seen.
