Dawila Chunga is a commercial farmer from Chigalinga village. He used to grow maize and sweet potatoes but is now focusing on growing sweet potato vines as he is one of the multiplication farmers we are working with.
What’s a multiplication farmer? These farmers plant the vines with the view of harvesting more vines than actual sweet potato. The vines are then cut and bundled ready to be distributed to more community members so that more people can benefit from growing and eating this improved variety of sweet potato.
