The Malawi University of Science and Technology (MUST), under its Centre for Innovation and Industrial Research (CIIR), is one of the partners in the Centre for Agricultural Transformation (CAT) programme on innovation capacity building. An opportunity has arisen at CAT for tertiary education students to come up with innovations that would address some of the challenges faced by groundnuts farmers.

activities take up a lot of time, energy and money.
