The annual Nigeria Maize Conference is set to return for its 4th edition with the theme, “Much More Maize 2.0.” The annual gathering of stakeholders and experts in the maize agricultural value chain will be held on April 27th, 2022, at the Bolton White Hotel, Abuja, in a hybrid event (physical and virtual).

This year’s conference is coming on the heels of the 2021 edition, which was themed, “Much More Maize’ where Bayer introduced the Much More Maize Toolkit, an innovative solution to help Nigerian farmers maximise farm yields and secure harvests that had previously been hampered by devastating disease and pests.

Organised by Bayer Nigeria Ltd., a subsidiary of Bayer AG Germany, the conference will bring together, key industry stakeholders from Bayer SA, the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA), Bayer Nigeria Ltd., Maize Association of Nigeria (MAAN), Institute of Agricultural Research (IAR), the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (FMARD), and the Agribusiness Department, Unity Bank, among others.

Speaking ahead of the conference, the Country Sales Manager, Bayer Nigeria Ltd, Mr. Temitope Banjo, stated that the country has made significant progress in maize production since the last edition of the conference and this year’s conference seeks to foster more impact in Nigeria and Africa. 

“Although maize production in Nigeria increased from 12.8 to 13.94 million metric tonnes between 2020 and 2021, propelling the country to become Africa’s largest maize producer (followed by South Africa, Egypt, and Ethiopia), there is still room for improvement to close the demand gap and meet the crop’s domestic and industrial needs in Nigeria. This year’s conference will reinforce our commitment to addressing poor agronomic factors and the use of bad seeds during planting and cultivation, as well as making a greater impact through innovative solutions to ensure maize production achieves the required productivity and profitability.” 

Some of the keynote speakers and panelists that will be attending this year’s edition include Johan Du Plessis, Head of Product Supply for Africa, Bayer South Africa; Prof. Friday Ekeleme, Weed Scientist, IITA; Ayodele Kayode, Market Development Agronomist, Bayer Nigeria Ltd.; Dr. Muyideen Oyekunle, Maize Breeder, IAR; Dr. Usman Bala Daudawa, Scientist, MAAN; Permanent Secretary, FMARD; Mrs. Patricia Ahannunaya, Head of Agribusiness, Unity Bank, Abuja, and Chairman of the day, Dr. Bello Abubakar, President of MAAN.
