Malawi Initiative: Sustainable Solutions for Developing Nations
FBSciences was part of a program developed by the Clinton Foundation, and the Salida Capital Foundation titled the “Malawi Initiative: Sustainable Solutions for Developing Nations,” the goal of which was to support sustainable growth and self-sufficiency in Africa.
PRO FBS Transit Seed (previously FBS Transit Seed® 500) ingredient product was provided for field trials. Over three years, the yields on soybeans and maize saw average increases of 34% and 21%, respectively. For local farmers and their families, these yields translate to a 75% increase in the average annual income of a typical farmer in Malawi. The results are significant in their implications for Malawi, one of the 20 poorest nations where 40 percent of the population lives on less than a dollar per day.
As large numbers of smallholder farm families increase their incomes, they can improve their living conditions and quality of life. Furthermore, an increase in income also affords them access to available healthcare, education, and a higher level of food security.
