In Africa, small grain production has been depicted as the most viable way to reduce food insecurity that is being caused by climate change and variability. This study sought to explore small grain production in relation to small-scale resettlement farmers in Dick Huck resettlement area in Mount Darwin District. A case study design was employed as a way of inquiry. Focus Group Discussions, Key informant interviews, Semi-structured interviews, Direct observations, and Document analysis were data collection methods in the study. Thematic analysis was used as a method for data analysis. Results from the study revealed that a number of micro and macro factors are negatively affecting small grain production in Dick Huck area. The study also revealed that giving small-scale resettlement farmers inputs to grow small grains does not guarantee their participation in small grain production.
