Many Malawians are farmers and 55% are organic farmers while 30% are farmers that apply fertilizer in their fields. Between August to March they works in their fields where they grows maize, groundnuts and millet depending on rainfall that comed in the months of November to March in malawi. The average turn out of the crops from their fields is 400kgs per farmer at the end of the farming season. During the months of August to November farmers opens irrigation farming.
Many Women farmers are struggling to produce enough food crops at the end of farming calendars considering to men farmers whom 30% are producing food crops for their families, this percentage of men farmers who are able to produce enough food crop is too small considering that 85% of malawians are farmers and is muchly done on family levels and he man is the head of the family.
