  • Description

    A RICE-GROWING SCHEME INAUGURATED IN THE LAKE CHILWA AREA OF MALAWI BY THE MALAWI GOVERNMENT LAST YEAR, IS NOW WELL ESTABLISHED. YOUNG PIONEERS FROM MALAWI, INSTRUCTED IN CHINESE RICE-GROWING METHODS BY EXPERTS FROM TAIWAN, HAVE PLANTED THE FIRST CROP.

    LAST YEAR, NINETEEN RICE CULTIVATION EXPERTS FROM TAIWAN ARRIVED IN MALAWI TO BEGIN THE SCHEME. AT PRESENT, TEN ACRES ARE UNDER CULTIVATION, BUT EVENTUALLY THE PADDY FIELDS WILL COVER 120 ACRES.

    MANY YOUNG MALAWI FARMERS ARE BEING INSTRUCTED IN RICE-GROWING METHODS IN THIS PILOT SCHEME. MORE THAN 200 OF THESE YOUNG PIONEERS ARE ALREADY BEING TRAINED.

    THE LAND AND THE CLIMATE IN THE LAKE CHILWA AREA ARE IDEALLY SUITED FOR RICE-GROWING.

    THE RICE PROGRAMME IS BEING GUIDED BY MR. KUO YEN, HEAD OF AN AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE IN TAIWAN.
