Research on sorghum and wheat flour composites
MetadataShow full item record
The development of improved maize varieties and processing technology has gradually enabled maize to replace sorghum in low rain areas of Zimbabwe and other SADCC states. Sorghum and millet production and utilization technologies have remained at traditional levels of low efficiency and productivity. The increased dependence on maize has been coupled with a concurrent increase in the demand for wheat and wheat products. With the exception of Malawi and Zimbabwe, the rest of the SADCC states are net importers of maize. Currently every SADCC state is an importer of wheat.
