11th June 2018:
At this time of year the maize has ripened and dried in most areas.
Here are Angelina and Maggie shelling the corn cobs to produce maize seeds
These will later be shelled and ground to a fine flour which is the main staple diet for almost all Malawians
This is a local heirloom seed which will have about 10 percent protein which is way ahead of the GM varieties.
This maize was grown without any inorganic fertilizer of noxious chemicals and so is truly organic.
We use a nitrogen fixing plant Tephrosia to achieve this.
