Tiyeni’s climate-smart agriculture, which achieves increased yields in rainfed agriculture, is ideally positioned to effectively break the cycle of perpetual food insecurity.
Farm families who practice the Tiyeni deep-bed method of farming witness over 50% increase in crop yields, even under adverse climate change impacts such as those experienced in 2015 and 2016 growing seasons.
Our team of agriculturally trained Malawian staff, based in Mzuzu, train communities in Tiyeni deep-bed farming. Adopters of the system are given a hand-up, with tools and training and staff work with communities to establish demonstration gardens, which operate as training sites for those who want to take The Tiyeni method on to their own land.
The objectives of the training and monitoring department are: deliver quality training on Tiyeni technology to other organizations, Agriculture Development Divisions (ADDs), and agro-business companies or individuals: make sure that the technology is well followed by these stakeholders: ensure that quality data is collected and recorded from the field.
