Mphangala maize well suited under irrigation in Malawi

Not only does the Demeter hybrid Mphangala produce well for smallscale farmers in the summer rainfed conditions, the hybrid is also proving to be well suited for irrigated production in the Malawi dry season.

These are some pictures of a crop at the Malosa irrigation project near Zomba on 9 August. Cobs look impressive and will give a good yield and worthwhile MWK return for farmer.
