3. 
Print out a map of the country at the district level for each staple food and cash crops
listed above that have a specific production pattern.  If the district level is not
available, then print out a map at the provincial level.
4. 
For each major staple food crop, draw on one of the maps the area of the country
where that food is the primary agricultural crop for a majority of the people.
5. 
Use a thematic or GIS mapping software to prepare the maps sketched out in steps 4
and 5.
6. 
Write a brief summary of the insights you have learned from this process.  Include in
the summary comments about:
For stable food crops:
1.
What is the major staple food crop grown in the country?
2.
What other important staple food crops are grown in the country?
3.
Are there any staple food crops that are specific to (or produced more in) a
particular part of the country?  If yes, what part of the country?
For cash crops:
1.
What is the major cash crop grown in the country?
2.
What other important cash crops are grown in the country?
3.
Are there any cash crops that are specific to (or produced more in) a
particular part of the country?  If yes, what part of the country?
Tips if the answers to the above questions are not easily available:
Try to identify any agricultural production studies that have been done for
your country.  A good source to acquire these studies are universities, donors
(who sometimes fund these studies), other government ministry offices, and
NGOs.
Send out a very brief (2 3  questions) questionnaire to be completed by
extension workers to ask what are the agricultural production patterns in their
area.
