Business upgrade in irrigated farming. Production of fruits and vegetables for market in the capital of Lilongwe, using land close to a river and an irrigation system. Production will partly be in greenhouses. Status: After signing the partnership agreement Christopher Beya started full speed with the construction of an irrigation system. Seeds for all types of vegetables were planted and the banana plantation is revived. Unfortunately the steel platform for the irrigation reservoirs collapsed, no one got hurt. The platform is rebuild, this time a construction from solid bricks. Seedlings have been transplanted and irrigated and first crops have been harvested, also experienced is gained with crops not doing well. The first greenhouse is used for tomato production and is giving promising yields. Market is tested by selling the products and responses are positive. Next step is to scale up productions of crops that do well and are in demand.
