Description

Peter Mwangofi is a pigeonpea farmer from Karonga district in Malawi. He relies on the crop for both food and income. Over the past few years, Mwangofi has seen a decline in pigeonpea produce, mainly due to land pressure, as he now has a smaller landholding than he did in the past. In 2016, Mwangofi was part of an exchange visit that ICRISAT organized for farmers in Karonga, to learn about pigeonpea ratooning, from an experienced commercial farmer in Mangochi district.
