Malawi Value Chain Study

This study builds on the findings of the SRMS Scoping Study, which was the first research output of the SAIRLA-funded OPM-led Smallholder Risk Management Solutions (SRMS) project. Based on a thorough investigation of the agricultural and marketing systems in the research countries, the Scoping Study selected teff and pigeon pea as two entry points through which to investigate risk management strategies in Ethiopia and Malawi, respectively. The purpose of this report is to develop a ‘replicable business model’ for pigeon pea in Malawi that reduces the risks that smallholders are exposed to in producing and marketing pigeon pea.
