The project was implemented, with other agricultural value chain partners, as a pilot – starting in February 2014 (planting) and due for harvesting in September and October 2014. Maize was then dried and stored. The first year of the pilot had planned to be funded by Absa, with the second and third year funded by interested parties (including GDOs).
Maize was harvested and the maize is currently in the processing of being sold. Maize from phase 1 (year 1) of the project was to be sold by the end of February 2015. Phase 2 implementation will depend on available funding
