Abstract: This paper briefly examines some technical, socio-economic and cultural problems which appear to hinder the extension of the improved maize storage crib to small size farmer. These problems were noted by the maize storage team of the Food Research Institute during its work in some of the main maize growing areas in Central Region. Problems like the traditional practice of using the underneath of the crib as a kitchen, the storability of newly introduced high yielding maize types, application of insecticides and the amount of loss which the farmer considers tolerable, have all been examined. Some recommendations have been made which hopefully will help develop better approaches towards extending the improved maize storage crib
