Corn

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 fertiliser or noxious chemicals and so is truly organic.

We use the nitrogen fixing plant Tephrosia to achieve this.
