Here we document and discuss developments regarding aggregate input, output, and productivity developments within South Africa. To do so we draw on an entirely new set of production data stretching back to 1910/11 reported in Liebenberg 2010, as well as related evidence reported by other studies for South Africa and other countries within subSaharan Africa.
The study evaluates the potential impacts of the Drought Tolerant Maize for Africa (DTMA) project run by CIMMYT and the International Institute for Tropical Agriculture (IITA) in 13 countries of eastern, southern and West Africa: Angola, Benin, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Mali, Mozambique, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda, ambia, and Zimbabwe and Ghana.
