As part of The Knight Center for Environmental Journalism’s two-continent, three-country training tour, we’re sharing stories that we’ve received through our global partnerships.

This story on the relationship between Malawi’s researchers and farmers was produced by Bernadetta Chiwanda from FM 101 Power Radio.

Emmanuel Kaunda is the out-going Acting Vice Chancellor at Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Fisheries. He says poor communication between scientists and farmers cost Malawi billions of Kwachas, Malawi’s currency.

FM 101 Power Radio is Malawi’s first independent radio station and covers all three regions of the country.
