The study establishes the effects of Kenyan 2007 post election violence on maize farming calendar, farm input prices, food prices and infrastructural development in Uasin Gishu District of Kenya. The study reveals post election violence devastating effects on maize farming. When peace was breached; many maize farmers were displaced, maize crop in the field and granaries was burnt and looted, farm implements and machinery were destroyed. Food deficit in the study district was experienced, hence millers had to import maize to sustain local consumer demand. Maize farming inputs prices shot up resulting in a drop in farming activities, delayed timings and reduced acreages coverage which contributed to food crisis in Kenya in General. The study recommends the that Kenyan government and other stakeholders in the maize sub-sector facilitate peace building and reconciliation to boost cohesion, empower the maize farmer by providing farm subsidies, affordable tractor hire services and enhance security for the sake of preventing this vital sub sector in the country from collapsing. The study is appoint of reference for other Nation to learn from.
