Abstract

This study was conducted to explore the value chain of corn (in-transition to organic) in Region 02. Three distinct value chains were identified and mapped (i.e., green corn, corn grains milled for food and corn grains as raw material in producing “cornick”).In the value chain of green corn, the largest value added was created at the level of green corn farmers. Processor – retailers ranked second while trader – wholesalers contributed the lowest share to value creation. In the value chain of corn grains milled for food, the largest value added was created at the level of the retailers. Corn farmers ranked second whereas village corn millers contributed the lowest share. In the value chain of corn grains used as raw material in processing “cornick”, the largest value added was created by “cornick” processors.  Retailers ranked second in terms of value creation, corn grain traders ranked third while corn farmers contributed the lowest share to value creation.  In-transition corn farming in Region 02 is confronted by problems such as: limited production, minimal input supply (i.e., corn varieties suited to organic farming and other organic inputs); limited government and private sector support for research and product development; lack of facilities suited for handling organic corn produce; high production and handling cost; lack of certified outlets; and absence of price premiums for organically produced corn to compensate penalties in production.
