How David—A Farmer from Endebes Increased His Maize Yield from 6 Bags to 35 bags/Acre in One Season.
For years, David a maize farmer from Endebes, had been struggling to get a good maize harvest.
- He would plant his maize on time—just before the rains started.
- Use DAP fertilizer.
- Top dress with CAN,
- Weed his maize on time.
But when it came to harvest time, he would get only 12 bags per acre.
That result was like getting a D- in an examination, despite studying from 5 am to 12 pm every day.
But he never gave up.
Every planting season he tried NEW Maize growing strategies all to improve his harvests—
- He tried using NPK 20:20:20 fertilizer,
- Then Munjingu rock Phosphate,
- Used lime to fight soil acidity,
- Then Muriate of potash
But his farm yields stagnated at 12 bags.
If by any chance he could get any improvement in yield performance, it was by one or two bags and that was it.
“How can I increase my Maize yields?” David asked himself this question day in day out.
But he never found answers.
This poor maize harvests continued for 15 years.
Every time the thought that things would change—the more things remained the same.
“I must be doing something wrong.”
He said to himself.
“I know with the whole of my heart that 1 acre is capable of giving 35+ bags of maize.”
Why am I getting 10 bags?
Then one day—by a stroke of luck, he found the solution.
When he tried it, the coming season, his yield Skyrocketed from 12 bags per acre to 35 bags per acre.
From that day henceforth, David has been getting 35+ bags of maize per acre.
And I am here… to share with you the exact formula that turned David from a loser into a winner!
Ready to know what made David get these amazing results?
5 Steps for Increasing Maize Yield from 12 bags to 35 Bags Per acre in One Season
Step 1: The Maize Variety You Choose Makes or Breaks Your Success.
To say the truth, there are many maize varieties in Kenya.
With all these available choices, it is easy to get confused on what to grow.
“So how do I choose the right variety from the hundreds available?” You may ask.
To make the right choice, you must first know the altitude of your farm.
This is because the maize varieties available grow in a specific altitude.
There are those varieties that grow well in:
- Low altitude areas,
- Medium altitude areas,
- and high altitude areas.
Therefore, if you grow low altitude maize in the medium or high altitude, don’t expect good maize yields.
For David, He discovered that Prestige 02 was the variety for his farm.
His farm was in the medium altitude zone, a zone suitable for this variety.
Step 2: Increase Your maize population per acre.
Now this looks like a simple and obvious thing to do.
But do you know thousands of farmers across the world use the wrong maize plant population per acre?
They either grow too few maize plants per acre or too many maize plants per acre.
So what is the right population/acre and how do achieve it?
Scientists from crop nuts Kenya recommend that One acre should have a maize population of 55,000.
And if you examine the logic of their recommendation, it makes perfect sense.
Let’s imagine each maize plant gives you 80 grams of dry maize.
From 55,000 plants, you’ll get 4,400 kilos of maize.
If you divide this figure with 90 to convert it into bags per acre, one acre should give you 48 bags.
And if you take into account losses to insects and weeds, theft you should have 35 bags per acre!

Step 3: Conduct a soil test to accurately determine your soil fertility levels.
One of the reasons that often result to poor yields is lack of some of the nutrients that a plant needs.
When David did a soil test, what he found his heart almost stopped.
He discovered that his soil was very low in magnesium, boron, zinc, copper iron and many other micro nutrients.
What this meant was “No matter what he did, he could not get more than 12 bags per acre of maize.”
These missing nutrients happened to be so critical in high maize yields.
Without them, his maize harvests would NEVER increase regardless of giving his maize DAP, NPK, and CAN.
However, things changed for the better when David changed tact and gave maize theses missing nutrients.
Think about that for a moment.
Could that be the reason why you are getting poor yields?
Step 4: Protect your maize plants from weeds
Weeds can cause up to 50% loss in maize production.
You could have the right plant population per acre, give all the necessary nutrients as said above, yet fail to get the right yields courtesy of weeds.
Fortunately, there are many ways to stop weeds.
The best way to do it is by using herbicides.
When used in the right way, herbicides are which are 95% more effective than jembe weeding.
Step 5: Control Pests and Diseases
Fortunately, in Kenya we do not have serious maize pests and diseases.
However, in the past 3 years, armyworms have tortured many maize farmers.
Nevertheless, if you spray the right insecticide 2-3 weeks after maize germination, you can effectively clear armyworm populations
Step 6: Grow Your Maize in The Right Environment
One great thing about Kenya is 50% of our environment is suitable for growing maize.
However, there are some specific environment that you need to take into account.
- Your farm must have deep soils
If the Basement rock is very close to the surface, no matter what you do, you’ll never get good maize yields.
It would be much better for you to grow other crops like mango, beans, coriander, basil and crops that aren’t affected by shallow soil.
- Your farm should be free of flooding and water stagnation
If your land is prone to flooding, create drainage channels.
Should that not be possible, avoid growing maize in that land.
Instead grow crops like arrowroots that aren’t affected by flooding and water logged conditions.
It is possible to get 50+ bags per acre from maize farming.
Maize farmers who follow these steps religiously don’t struggle to get such insane yields.
Change your maize farming strategy and I guarantee that you’ll be surprised to see you succeeding beyond your wildest dream.
