New farming technologies, solution to food insecurity in Malawi

Farmers have been challenged to embrace new farming technologies if they are to fight food insecurity in their homes.

CISP Malawi District Coordinator for Karonga District, Raphael Mwakyanjala, said this at Hara Agriculture Scheme during an agriculture field show organised to showcase new farming technologies under Smart Climate Project.

“Sustainable agriculture in Malawi for a better resilience to climate change shocks can only be achieved if many households are adopting best farming practices such as manure production, System of Rice Intensifications (SRI), Bedrock for Sustainable Agriculture and Agribusiness Development among others which will help promote food security as well as revenue generation,” Mwakyanjala said.

Director of Agriculture and Natural Resources for Karonga, Youngs Nyirenda, said the new farming technologies will be instrumental in achieving resilient climate smart agriculture.

Smart Climate Agriculture Project is a three-year project funded by the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation, aimed at improving livelihoods of people through improved agriculture.
