AccessAgriculture Video

Your maize is mature when the leaves and the husks start to dry and turn yellow. Start harvesting improved varieties first and end with local varieties which are more resistant to pest attacks. Dehusk your maize in the field to avoid bringing pests to your home. Properly sort your maize in the field, burn the cobs that have been attacked and store the healthy ones.
