Abstract
Malawi lies mostly between latitudes 9° and 17° South and longitudes 33° and 35° East. The physical features and climate of the country vary appreciably. With Lake Malawi along the eastern border, the Shire River flowing from its southern extremity, and mountain ranges running throughout the hinterland, and altitudes ranging from below 200 feet to above 5,000 feet, many types of environments are offered to crop plants. The main features of Malawi's climate is its seasonal pattern of rainfall. Rain falls mainly from the later part of November to April, and the rest of the year is dry.
