Malawi's Mutharika Decries Wasted Irrigation Potential

According to Mutharika; “This country can irrigate up to about 408,000 hectares of which we have only developed 108,000 hectares for irrigation which reflects only 26 per cent of our exploited irrigation potential.

“The question is: why? We needed a comprehensive policy for irrigation. We needed to invest in irrigation.”

The President hailed irrigation policy saying would address spatial and temporal water shortages and deal with customary land issues that affect irrigation.
