ASAP Working Together with TLC
In order to ensure food and economic security at household level, ASAP works in close collaboration with Total Land Care (TLC) an organization which specializes in conservation agricultural technologies. TLC, through ASAP, recently supplied twenty-eight community members with sorghum and pigeon pea seed for multiplication. The rural farmers entered into an agreement with ASAP to buy their yield at an agreed price with a view to ensuring that the seed benefits more households within the community. ASAP provides technical support to the participating community members and pictured here is a happy farmer (in a white T-shirt) explaining to ASAP Field Officers Lingstone and Nellie (from left to right) how the pigeon pea crop is fairing in his garden at Kabwatika in Chikwawa district. This was during one of the recent monitoring visits.
