Malawi farmers increase crop output with new "A" frame technique!

Sometimes, it seems so obvious.....

In the workshop for farmers from 14 different villages (who'll each then immediately train 25 villagers), they learn to use an "A" frame. This helps them create beds that accommodate 3 rows of crops, rather than the usual 2 rows.

We're all used to planting in beds that have 2 rows. 3 rows is just as easy to care for. Conserves water. And produces 50% more.
