Finally, in 1997 consumer subsidies were abolished. NMC now only purchases grain from the private sector and only for milling; it operates in competition with private millers. Initially, agricultural market liberalisation caused confusion among producers and traders and benefited only a small proportion of the population (Tyler & Bennett 1993; Coulter 1994). Traders were quite willing to transport maize long distances to the coast, but only from those producers to whom they had easy access. Farmers in major maize-producing regions of Ruvuma and Rukwa, which are at least 1000 km from the coast, were a l a serious disadvarihge due Lo high Lrarisporhlion costs.
