Abstract: This study uses a multi-market model of maize production to assesses the potential impact of "on-the-shelf" improved maize technologies on the welfare of rural and urban households in Kenya. We find that diffusion of technologies in favored areas is likely to have substantially greater positive impacts on aggregate real incomes.
