A proud Francis Blair stands in a field of Hybrid Paprika grown on the Exagris Katonthowolo Estate (KTW).
Francis has recently been transferred from Nkozo Estate in the same area where he worked among a number of other managers to KTW, he now manages the entire Estate under the guidance of his Area Manager Stewart Chipeta.
Despite a lower than average rainfall season the Hybrid Paprika is not showing any signs of distress and an acceptable yield is expected.
This is due to the fact that the imported seeds produce a better quality plant which reacts well to the high level of management exercised by Francis.
In future Exagris-Africa will be importing more seed of this quality.
