to obtain specified information from any person/s engaged in the production, processing,
marketing, preservation and/or storage of controlled products.
Therefore, to efficiently and effectively facilitate the marketing of locally produced white maize

The NAB will conduct field verifications in some production zones to ensure the accuracy
of the expected production data collected. All maize grain farmers with limited access to
internet connectivity are advised to register their expected harvest at the nearest Agricultural
Development Centers (ADCs), where they will be assisted by officials of the Ministry of
Agriculture, Water and Land Reform (MAWLR), Directorate of Agricultural Extension and
Engineering Services (DAPEES).
During the expected harvest registration process at the ADCs, maize farmers are expected to
provide the following vital information and documents:
1. Any proof of identification (original or certified copy of ID, Birth Certificate, Letter from the
Traditional Authority, Land Lease or company registration certificate).
2. Complete the Expected Grain Production Data Collection Form; indicate the estimated
hectares planted, tonnage / no of bags to be marketed and expected harvesting date.
Maize farmers who have access to internet connectivity can access the Expected Grain
