The dynamic process of the decreasing importance of maize was addressed in an additional question on the decreasing intensity of maize plantings which is reported in Table 7-5. The combination of different plot sizes and different times reported make it difficult to determine the decrease in hectares. Instead, all farmers were asked how many hectares they planted 10 years ago as a way to compare current activity levels to historical ones.
