In the past few days, we have carried out an inspection on a site that has not been used for agriculture for more than 30 years and have taken soil samples that are examined in the laboratory for soil-physical parameters and nutrients.

After a long technical discussion with a local agricultural engineer and a subsequent discussion with the villagers at an extra meeting, the problem and various approaches to solving it were discussed. We are confident that we will be able to implement an irrigation project near Ulongwe in 2016 in cooperation with Emmanuel Internation Malawi. In a first step, 9 hectares of land will be irrigated and thus made fertile again.
