Redefining the goals and objectives of the Farm Input Subsidy Program (FISP) in Malawi

The overall conclusion that can be drawn from the existing body of research is that the FISP has helped increase smallholder fertilizer use. It has also had a positive but modest direct impact on maize yields and overall smallholder maize production in Malawi. There is conflicting evidence as to whether rural poverty rates have risen or declined in recent years, and it is unclear how FISP has directly impacted household poverty.
