Malawi : Two million at risk of food shortages

Two million people are at risk of food shortages in Malawi, the country’s agriculture minister has said.

A drought and an infestation of armyworms have damaged Malawi’s maize crops, prompting the country to ban exports of the product.

Malawi is also considering restocking its national grain reserves.

Armyworm outbreaks can be devastating for crops, and are particularly prevalent after a prolonged drought.
