1 ESA IRRI in East and Southern Africa JF Rickman, Regional Coordinator, IRRI- ESA

2 IRRI in the region Started in Mozambique:- September 2006 Now work in 7 countries :- Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Mozambique Tanzania, Uganda, Zanzibar Offices in 3 countries:-Mozambique, Tanzania, Burundi Staff :- 30 ( 9 IRS, 5 NRS, 16 TA’s) Regional Research Sites (54) –Mozambique 17, –Tanzania 20 –Burundi 9 –Kenya 2, Uganda 3, Malawi 1, Zanzibar 1, Ethiopia1

3 Rice in Mozambique Rice Area= 200,000ha Rice Production = 220,000 t Rice consumption =550,000 t Imports =330,000t (60%) Consumption 23kg/head Environments - Rainfed = 97% (0.8 -1.2t/ha) - Irrigated = 3% (2.5 - 3.0t/ha)

4 IRRI-Mozambique IRS –Surapong Sarkarung (Plant breeder) –Alexis Ndayiragije (Plant breeder) –Joe Rickman (Crop production and Engineer) –Carlos Zandamela (Liaison scientist – Agronomist) –Mechanization specialist -2012 National Staff –Ivone Lopez-Office Administartor –Mohammed Jala- Operations TA –Tembi- TA, Umbeluzi –David Muhale- TA, Quelimane Interns and students –2 interns University Eduardo Mondlane –1 MSc student, SUA, Tanzania

6 IRRI Activities in Mozambique 1.Socio economics program 2.Breeding program 3.Crop production and post harvest (water, weed, nutrient management, equipment testing and demonstration) 4.Capacity building 5.Information management (RKB, Rice and Extension management manuals) 6.Private sector and village based programs

7 1. Socio Economic Study in Mozambique Case Survey (CS) 2007 -Chokwe irrigation scheme Extensive Survey (ES) 2008-09 -9 districts in 2 major rice producing provinces: Zambézia and Sofala province -Jointly conducted w/ TIA2008 (a nation wide ag. HH survey) -Second round survey of CS and ES in 2011-12 (on-going)

8 Results from Mozambique ES & CS CS (Irrigated) ES (Rainfed) No. of rice farmers 176279 Share of the rain-fed (%) 0100 Paddy yield (t/ha) 2.01.0 Paddy yield (t/ha) of top 25 % 3.82.6 Cultivated area in the sample parcel (ha) 1.60.3 Share of plot with bund (%) 10046 Share of modern variety (%) 830.7 Chemical fertilizer use (kg/ha) 38.00 Share of hh using animal/machinery for land prep (%) 833.6
