Summary


During this Fair, Simpson Foundation Malawi is showcasing the " Solar Corridor Farming System" as an Innovative, resilient and productive farming system to create a sustainable Food Future. 

There is a big shortfall between the amount of food we produce today and the amount needed to feed everyone in 2050, with about 3 billion more mouths to feed. Therefore, enhancing food security while contributing to climate change mitigation and adaption, preserving the natural resource base and ecosystem will require the transition to agricultural production systems that are more productive, efficient, with less variability and greater stability in their outputs, and are more resilient to climate related risks and shocks. Sustainable food production is no longer an option but a reality to create a sustainable food future.

 Solar Corridor farming system is a more productive and more resilient solution to meet the desired shift to manage land, water, soil nutrients and genetic resources more efficiently to meet the rising global food demand. Through reduced tillage, intercropping, and crop residue soil conservation, the management system improves soil quality; enhance Carbon and Nitrogen content, nutrient cycling, and high microbial activity.

  1. Dear Friends from Malawi, we would like to meet you to learn more about your work. I am from the 4p1000 secretariat and Nandini is from stand 037. Please connect to the chat at https://chat.4p1000.org , search for our names and post us a message. Greetings Marc

  2. Thank you for sharing with everyone the work you are doing with small holder farmers in Malawi. I would like to invite you to visit our Stand 19 - Agripower Australia, to learn about the benefits that silicon fertiliser has for conservation agriculture, soil and plant health, and carbon sequestration. Please leave a message for us if you would like to meet and talk more! www.agripower.com.au

    Really appreciate what you are doing for the farmers through your project. Would like to know if companion cropping can also be considered as it increases biodiversity and eventually enhances biodiversity in the soil as well. Josephine of HomelandGreen.HK of Stand 27 and Stand 35.
