The southern region marketing officer for one of the leading seed manufacturing companies Monsanto Malawi, Dennis Kachikho, made the appeal Wednesday during a field day visit at Male Village at Mbulumbuzi area in the district.

Kachikho said hunger can easily be defeated in the country if farmers plant hybrid seeds.

“Monsanto seeds are resilient to hot weather and do very well both in the dambo and in upland, as such farmers who have used them have managed to triple their yields, thereby ending hunger in their homes,” he said.

Kachikho said its high time farmers start growing Monsanto seeds “because it is easily marketable”.

A representative for the Chiradzulu district agricultural development office Lusungu Ntokale also advised farmers to plant Monsanto seeds saying is suits different environment.

A farmer who has been using Monsanto seeds Boniface Chipojola, said he has been having bumper yields each and every year

“I can bear testimony that if farmers venture into Monsanto seeds we can end hunger because it gives you triple fields,” he said.

Varieties of maize that Monsanto sells include DKC 80-73, (Mchikumbe Wamkulu), DKC 90-89 (Fumba) and DKC 80-53 (Mkangala).

The theme of the field day visits was, ‘Use Monsanto hybrid to fight climate change.’
