This project produced and widely promoted a revised IPM strategy for maize GLS, based on sound cultural practices and the use of resistant/tolerant varieties developed locally for different agro-ecological zones in the East African region. Participatory training (of >300 agricultural extension staff and >20,000 smallholder farmers), development of leaflets (8,000), posters (>10,000), newspaper articles, radio documentaries/talk shows and training videos on maize GLS and subsequent dissemination to key stakeholders in the maize production systems was achieved.
