factors influence the farming projectof production maize in south africa
The production of maize is influenced by a number of factors. First of all, those are climate conditions. Very strong winds may flatten the upright plants and flash rains may even cause the stalks to be washed away. Droughts may cause fires which completely destroy the crops. Secondly, sandy soils also affect the possibility of maize production. Clayish soils offer some resistance to floods, but in sandy soils, which are observed in Africa, the maize roots are not as well anchored.Thus, they become more subjected to the effects of wind. Thirdly, education and introduction of new technologiesaffect the production of maize.
