Lilongwe-based seed manufacturing company, Peacock Seeds, can as well pat itself on the back for a job well done, following farmers’ excitement on the performance of the company’s seeds.
Peacock Seeds is an award winning local seed manufacturing company in the country founded over a decade ago.
Most farmers who planted the company’s varieties such as CAP9001, Peacock MH 30 and Peacock 10, according to available data.
“I’m certain of a bumper harvest. It was the first time for me to try the crop,” said Innocent Kalembo of drought prone Salima district.
Peacock Seeds managing director, Felix Jumbe, said they were encouraged with the feedback.
He said there were many attributes attached to their crops, and added that was why farmers in the country preferred their products to others.
“Our seeds have high yielding potentials, are drought and disease resistant and mature early,” said Jumbe.
