Malawi Contract Farming Strategy

Contract farming has the potential to improve the livelihoods of farmers in Malawi through increased access to markets for agricultural commodities, including export markets. At the same time, contract farming offers an opportunity for buyers of agricultural commodities to source high-quality output as and when they need it, thus assuring themselves reliable supply of the agricultural commodities. These advantages, inherent in contract farming, can significantly improve marketing of agricultural commodities, increase production and productivity, and hence contribute to wealth creation and poverty reduction in Malawi.
