Minister of Agriculture and Irrigation Lobin Lowe on Tuesday toured projects which Beyond Water Pump Aid is implementing in the area of Traditional Authority Njombwa and Kaomba in Kasungu.


Speaking during the tour , Lowe said he was much impressed with the cheaper technologies which Beyond water is implementing.


The NGO is promoting a Rope and Washer pump which farmers are buying for irrigation use. 


Malawi has 400, 000 irrigable land but the country uses only 150,000 leaving out 250,00 Hectares unirrigable. 
Minister Lowe urged farmers to embrace irrigation since its only means of ending poverty in this country.
Lowe has since commended Beyond Water Pump Aid for bringing irrigation technologies cheaper to the small scale farmers. 


Beyond Water Pump Aid Managing Director  Elias Chimlambe  has since commended Ministry of Agriculture for embracing their agricultural technologies. 


Chimlambe said Beyond Water decided to find suitable technologies Rope and Washer which is suitable to small scale farmers who cannot afford the sophisticated facilities. 
“We will continue providing these technologies in order to benefit Malawians.” He said. 

During the tour Deputy Speaker Madalitso Kazombo pleaded to the Minister to sort out issues to do with fertilizer prices.

Kazombo said Government should consider not reducing the number of AIP beneficiaries as well.


Beyond Water was established in 2017 by Pump Aid as a social enterprise to transform access to water for household, community and irrigation needs inMalawi.


Beyond Water Pump Aid is aimed at building sustainable local economies and working to end aid dependency through the creation of businesses and jobs with and economic and social impact.


Malawi Government is implementing Irrigation Master plan which recognises fundamental importance of irrigation in the development of Malawi as recognised in successive national development plans.


According to the Master plan, to date only 104, 000 hectares have been developed for irrigation despite the considerable potential that exists. 


The absence of a comprehensive IMP and investment framework has contributed to a fragmented and stop/go approach to irrigation development and the lower-than-expected rate of expansion.
