In Cameroon the northern regions (Adamawa, North and Far North) are the main cereal producers, maize and sorghum mainly. These are the basic food consumption in this part of the country. The quantity of cereals produced within these 3 regions during the harvest is sufficient to feed the population, but a large quantity is exported to Nigeria. Prices increase in the local market during the dry season.  

A thorough market and crop assessment may help to establish a calendar of best procurement period, depending on the type of the commodity and the region of purchase. Procurement activities are mostly undertaken in Northern Cameroon (Adamoua, North and Far-North Regions) for cereals. Beans are mainly procured in the West Province.
