TRFCA guides producers on climate change adaptive production

The Tea Research Foundation of Central Africa-TRFCA has called on tea producers to use advanced varieties in order to mitigate climate change effects.

TRFCA Chief Research Scientist, Nick Mphangwe, has made the call during a field day at Mimosa in Mulanje District.

Malawi has been facing climate change-induced disasters, which the TRFCA says are equally affecting tea production hence the need for adaptive mechanisms.

Use of improved cultivars (cultivated varieties) is being touted as a long term adaption strategy against climate change challenges.

Tea is one of Malawi’s major exports, with over 90 %of the total local produce going towards the international market.
