Whilst no official estimates of maize production have been released for the 2013/14 food consumption year, the recent Malawi Vulnerability Assessment
Committee (MVAC) and Emergency Food Security Assessment (EFSA) reports indicate that a significant proportion of the population will be unable to meet their annual food requirements.
