Irrigation Aplenty

Members of a farming co-operative in the Mchinji District of Malawi are now able to irrigate their land with help from a CRS program. Irrigation during the dry winter months allows these farmers to vastly increase the amount and diversity of crops they are able to grow, which allows them to earn money selling their surplus food on the local markets.

CRS works through local partner agencies to implement agricultureand environment programs for the poorest farm families and rural communities worldwide. Given certain climatic conditions, proper irrigation is key to making the projects sustainable.
