Abstract: In northern Malawi, farmers have been getting help identifying the best legume options to help improve soil fertility, food security and family nutrition. More than four thousand farmers in the region are part of the Soils, Food and Healthy Communities program (SFHC). The focus has been on legume intercrop methods like soya, pigeonpea and ground nut to improve the quality of the soil and provide different edible crops for households at different times of the year. This article is drawn from “The Link Africa “ which is dedicated to stories that connect Canada to Africa.
