synopsis

 

Smallholders are the driving force of the Malawian agriculture. With simple tools, they manage farms of around one hectare. Climate change and declining soil fertility make it increasingly difficult for them to provide enough food for a fast-growing population.

 

The Malawian government initiated the KULIMA project in cooperation with the EU to improve the situation of these farmers and ensure food security. One of the measures is the establishment of Farmer Field Schools. The film portrays farmers, scientists and extension officers making these schools possible. It shows the concept behind the schools, demonstrates innovative farming practices and invites more farmers to join.
