Biological fight applied to the South countries
Cereals are one of the main staples of humans in sub-Saharan Africa. This is particularly true in Kenya where maize occupies the first place.
It is consumed in different ways : grilled, boiled as porridge, and ugali, which is favored national dish.
In Kenya, maize is mainly grown by small-scale peasant farmers.
Unfortunately, like other cultivated crops, maize is attacked by a plethora of diseases and insect pests, among the cereal stemborers.
