      Discussion. The distribution of dairy farms in the present study was in favour of women. This observation was different from the situation in the Central Region of Malawi and Dejen” district, Ethiopia (Chagunda et al ; Mekonnen et al ).The uptake and implementation of new dairy farming techniques have generally been reported to be higher in male than female headed smallholder dairy. the survey in November and December in six major tobacco-growing districts of Malawi with smallholder tobacco farmers. The six districts were purposively sampled as the leading tobacco producing districts, based on nationally representative production data from the Integrated Household Survey.

A field sample survey was conducted in October covering 11 districts from all the three administrative regions of Malawi. In the Southern Region of the country the study was conducted in Chikhwawa District in the Shire.

Malawi’s Smallholder Coffee Authority (SCA) was established under the Ministry of Agriculture in The SCA was responsible for providing extension and marketing services and input loans to smallholder coffee farmers in northern Malawi. The Authority set up initial processing factories in different areas and owned a processing plant in Mzuzu.

The coffee in the Northern and Central regions of Malawi is mainly grown by smallholder farmers while in Southern Malawi coffee is grown by commercial farmers on. Sixth, coffee farm management has improved substantiall y from smallholder farms that we re poorly managed with un planted patches to well manag ed coffee filled due to support by a replanting.

A two-year survey (, ) was conducted in northern Malawi to estimate the occurrence of coffee diseases, with emphasis on coffee berry disease (CBD) caused by Colletotrichum kahawae.

These data may be compared to other countries such as Malawi, where 90% of total agriculture comes from smallholder farmers who own less than 1 ha [18, 19].

environmental land use management conundrum, the chosen study area represents a worst case possible scenario of environmental land cover management in Malawi. We will use the terms “smallholder farmer”, “farmer”, “farm household” and “household” interchangeably, unless otherwise stated.

Background. This study investigates the factors affecting agricultural production of farm households in the National Regional State of Tigray, Ethiopia. The major primary sources of data for the study were farm household surveys, focus group discussions and key informant interviews. Scope.

To a layman 'farm management' probably means just that - a body of activities and procedures carried out by a farmer in the ongoing management of his or her farm and for which advice may be available from professional specialists in farm management. 1 To an extent this is correct (as per farm management in Field A of Section ) but, more broadly, farm management as.

Each Regional Office has its own satellite. In Malawi, contract farming under contracting state authorities was introduced in coffee, tea and sugarcane, crops that were mainly grown on large scale plantations.

Contract farming is a system where a central processing or exporting unit purchases the harvests of independent farmers and the terms of the purchase are arranged in advance.

Malawi agriculture is composed of two main subsectors: small-scale farmers and estates. Smallholder farmers comprise an estimated 2 million farm families and cultivate about million hectares of land. Smallholder production is highly subsistent. It is characterized by low levels of.

In addition to the smallholder farmers, there are 15 private large-scale dairy farms accounting for about milking cows. The major differentiating features between smallholder and large-scale dairy farms are the holding size, the genotype of cattle raised and the level of management applied.

cases smallholder agriculture generally refers to rural producers often referred to as small-scale, resource poor or peasant farmers predominantly in developing countries, who farm using mainly family labour and for whom the farm provides the principal source of income (Barnett, ).

In particular, coffee production is dominated by smallholder farmers from the Northern Region of the country. The three quarters of Malawi consist of plateaux ( to metres), and the Northern Region is divided into extensive highlands, including Viphya and Nyika Plateaux, and lowlands by the lake shore.

A survey of smallholder farm households was carried out in Malawi in Dietary diversity scores are calculated from 24 h recall data. Production diversity scores are calculated from farm production data covering a period of 12 months. Individual- and household-level regression models are developed and estimated.

A review of the smallholder dairy production in Malawi was conducted using livestock annual reports and other literature that was supplemented with primary data from a baseline survey conducted in December Smallholder dairy farming in Malawi operates with support from institutions that facilitate access to initial stock and dairy production technologies.

This article contributes to the limited literature on farm size and productivity in smallholder agriculture in sub‐Saharan Africa. Farm survey data, and the results from a linear programming farm‐household model, provide evidence for a positive relationship between farm size and productivity in both labour‐scarce and land‐scarce smallholder farming in Malawi during the 's.

sector in Malawi • The Malawian dairy sector represents a small proportion of the country’s agricultural sector and livestock sub-sector. • Location. Most dairy (smallholder) farmers are situated around the three large cities in Malawi: Blantyre (the Southern Region), Lilongwe (Central Region) and Mzuzu (the Northern Region).

• Number.While the exact contribution of smallholder farms to agricultural production is debated, their role is not insignificant. In low- and lower-middle-income countries, smallholder farms (with less than 2 ha of land) manage 30%–40% of agricultural land and contribute a sizeable percentage of agricultural production (Lowder et al., ).Milk production in Malawi is stagnating while steadily increasing in neighboring countries.

We performed a literature review to identify factors negatively affecting milk production in Malawi and propose potential solutions to overcome the particular constraints. We structured the analysis along the value chain with three major components: upstream providers, on-farm production, and downstream.
