Evaluation of Bush and Climbing Beans under different Cropping Systems and Nutrient Management Regimes in Linthipe and Kandeu, Malawi
CIAT is undertaking action research based on mother-bay approach in Linthipe and Kandeu, in the Dedza and Ntcheu districts of Malawi, respectively. The overall aim is to improve bean production through introduction of improved bean genotypes and integrated soil fertility management (ISFM) technologies. Participatory approaches were adopted to enhance learning in farmers and provision of feedback to researchers. Trials were laid out in a split plot design, where varieties were whole plots while management option (eight treatments) were split plots.
