In , it was estimated that 1. At independence in , only some , acres , hectares of European-owned estates remained, mainly as tea estates or small estates farmed directly by their owners.
Although Nyasaland has some mineral resources, particularly coal, these were not exploited in colonial times.
In the mid-to-late 19th century, cassava , rice, beans and millet were grown in the Shire Valley, maize, cassava, sweet potatoes and sorghum in the Shire Highlands, and cassava, millet and groundnuts along the shores of Lake Nyasa now Lake Malawi.
These crops continued to be staple foods throughout the colonial period, although with less millet and more maize.
Tobacco and a local variety of cotton were grown widely. Throughout the protectorate, the colonial Department of Agriculture favoured European planter interests.
Its negative attitudes towards African agriculture, which it failed to promote, helped to prevent the creation of a properly-functioning peasant economy.
The land was used for a few years after another section of land was cleared. Compared with European, North American and Asian soils many sub-Saharan African soils are low in natural fertility, being poor in nutrients, low in organic matter and liable to erosion.
The best cultivation technique for such soils involves 10 to 15 years of fallow between 2 or 3 years of cultivation, the system of shifting cultivation and fallowing that was common in Nyasaland as long as there was sufficient land to practice it.
As more intensive agricultural use began in the s, the amounts and duration of fallow were progressively reduced in more populous areas, which placed soil fertility under gradually increasing pressure.
This showed that the majority of soils in Malawi were adequate for smallholders to produce maize. Most have sufficient if barely so organic material and nutrients, although their low nitrogen and phosphorus favours the use of chemical fertilisers and manure.
Although in the early years of the 20th century European estates produced the bulk of exportable cash crops directly, by the s, a large proportion of many of these crops particularly tobacco was produced by Africans, either as smallholders on Crown land or as tenants on the estates.
The first estate crop was coffee, grown commercially in quantity from around , but competition from Brazil which flooded the world markets by and droughts led to its decline in favour of tobacco and cotton.
Both these crops had previously been grown in small quantities, but the decline of coffee prompted planters to turn to tobacco in the Shire Highlands and cotton in the Shire Valley.
Tea was also first planted commercially in in the Shire Highlands, with significant development of tobacco and tea growing taking place after the opening of the Shire Highlands Railway in During the 56 years that the protectorate existed, tobacco, tea and cotton were the main export crops, and tea was the only one that remained an estate crop throughout.
The areas of flue-cured brightleaf or Virginia tobacco farmed by European planters in the Shire Highlands rose from 4, acres in to 14, acres in , yielding 2, ton of tobacco.
The First World War boosted the production of tobacco, but post-war competition from United States Virginia required a rebate of import duty under Imperial Preference to assist Nyasaland growers.
Much of the tobacco produced by the European estates was of low-grade. In , 1, tons of a 3, ton crop was saleable and many smaller European growers went out of business.
Between and their numbers fell from to The decline in flue-cured tobacco intensified throughout the s. Formation of a Native Tobacco Board in stimulated production of fire-cured tobacco.
At first, these farmed Crown land, but later estates contracted sharecropping "Visiting Tenants". The number of growers fluctuated until the Second World War then expanded, so by there were over , growers planting , acres and growing 10, tons of tobacco.
About three-quarters were smallholders on Native Trust Land, the rest estate tenants. Numbers declined later, but there were still 70, in , producing 12, tons.
Although the value of tobacco exports continued to rise, they decreased as a proportion of the total after because of the increased importance of tea.
Egyptian cotton was first grown commercially by African smallholders in the upper Shire valley in and spread to the lower Shire valley and the shores of Lake Nyasa.
By American Upland cotton was grown on estates in the Shire Highlands. African-grown cotton was bought by British Central Africa Company and the African Lakes Corporation until when government cotton markets were established where a fairer price for cotton was given.
Reckless opening-up of unsuitable land by inexperienced planters had led to 22, acres of cotton in , but tons were exported. A shortage of manpower and disastrous floods in the lower Shire valley caused a drop in production to tons in It was not until that the industry recovered, reaching 2, tons in and a record of 4, tons exported in This was mainly African production in the lower Shire valley, as output from European estates became insignificant.
Production varied widely, and increasing amounts were used domestically, but at independence cotton was only the fourth most valuable export crop.
Tea was first exported from Nyasaland in after tea plantations were established in the high rainfall areas of Mlanje District, later extended into Cholo District.
Exports steadily increased from tons in to 1, tons in , from 12, acres planted. Despite its value to the protectorate's economy, the main problem with its tea on the international market was its low quality.
Groundnut exports were insignificant before when they amounted to tons, but a government scheme to promote their cultivation and better prices led to a rapid increase in the mid-to-late s.
At independence, the annual exports totalled 25, tons and groundnuts became Nyasaland's third most valuable export.
They are also widely grown for food. In the s and s, Nyasaland became a major producer of Tung oil and over 20, acres on estates in the Shire Highlands were planted with Tung trees.
However, after , world prices declined and production dropped as Tung oil was replaced by cheaper petrochemical substitutes. Until the famine, maize was not exported but a government scheme then promoted it as a cash crop and 38, tons were exported in By independence, local demand had reduced exports to virtually nil.
Seasonal hunger was common in pre-colonial and early colonial times, as peasant farmers grew food for their families' needs, with only small surpluses to store, barter for livestock or pass to dependents.
Famines were often associated with warfare, as in a major famine in the south of the country in The introduction of a market economy eroded several pre-colonial survival strategies such as growing secondary crops in case the main one failed, gathering wild food or seeking support from family or friends and eventually created an underclass of the chronically malnourished poor.
Nyasaland suffered local famines in and at various times between and , and significant food shortages in other years.
The government took little action until the situation was critical, when relief supplies were expensive and their distribution delayed, and was also reluctant to issue free relief to the able-bodied.
It did however import around 2, tons of maize for famine relief in and and buy grain in less-affected areas. Although these events were on a smaller scale than in , the authorities did not react by making adequate preparations to counteract later famines.
In November and December , the rains stopped several months early and food shortages rapidly developed in the Shire Highlands.
Government and mission employees, many urban workers and some estate tenants received free or subsidised food, or food on credit.
Those less able to cope, such as widows or deserted wives, the old, the very young and those already in poverty suffered most, and families did not help remoter relatives.
In and , 25, tons of food were imported, although initial deliveries were delayed. The official mortality figure was to deaths, but the true number may have been higher, and there were severe food shortages and hunger in and From the time of Livingstone's expedition in , the Zambesi , Shire River , and Lake Nyasa waterways were seen as the most convenient method of transport for Nyasaland.
However, the Zambesi-Lower Shire and Upper Shire-Lake Nyasa systems were separated by 50 miles of impassable falls and rapids in the Middle Shire which prevented continuous navigation.
The main economic centres of the protectorate at Blantyre and in the Shire Highlands were 25 miles from the Shire, and transport of goods from that river was by inefficient and costly head porterage or ox-cart.
Until , small river steamers carrying tons or less operated between the British concession of Chinde at the mouth of the Zambezi and the Lower Shire, about miles.
The British government had obtained a year lease of a site for an ocean port at Chinde at which passengers transferred to river steamers from Union-Castle Line and German East Africa Line ships up to , when the service was suspended.
The Union-Castle service was resumed between and , when the port at Chinde was damaged by a cyclone.
Until the opening of the railway in , passengers and goods were transferred to smaller boats at Chiromo to go a further 50 miles upstream to Chikwawa , where porters carried goods up the escarpment and passengers continued on foot.
Low water levels in Lake Nyasa reduced the Shire River's flow from to ; this and the changing sandbanks made navigation difficult in the dry season.
The main port moved downriver from Chiromo to Port Herald in , but by it was difficult and often impossible to use Port Herald, so a Zambezi port was needed.
The extension of the railway to the Zambezi in effectively ended significant water transport on the Lower Shire, and low water levels ended it on the Upper Shire, but it has continued on Lake Nyasa up to the present.
A number of lake steamers, at first based at Fort Johnston , served lakeside communities which had poor road connections. Their value was increased in , when a northern extension of the railway from Blantyre reached Lake Nyasa, and a terminal for Lake Services was developed at Salima.
However, harbour facilities at several lake ports were inadequate and there were few good roads to most ports: Railways could supplement water transport and, as Nyasaland was nowhere closer than miles to a suitable Indian Ocean port, a short rail link to river ports that eliminated porterage was initially more practical than a line direct to the coast passing through low-population areas.
From here, goods went by river steamers to Chinde then by sea to Beira , involving three transhipments and delays. The Central African Railway was poorly built and soon needed extensive repairs.
Chinde was severely damaged by a cyclone in and was unsuitable for larger ships. The alternative ports were Beira, which had developed as a major port in the early 20th century, and the small port of Quelimane.
Beira was congested, but significant improvements were made to it in the s: The Trans-Zambezia Railway, constructed between and , ran miles from the south bank of the Zambezi to join the main line from Beira to Rhodesia.
Its promoters had interests in Beira port, and they ignored its high cost and limited benefit to Nyasaland of a shorter alternative route.
The Zambezi crossing ferry, using steamers to tow barges, had limited capacity and was a weak point in the link to Beira. For part of the year the river was too shallow and at other times it flooded.
In , the ferry was replaced by construction of the Zambezi Bridge , over two miles long, creating an uninterrupted rail link to the sea.
In the same year, a northern extension from Blantyre to Lake Nyasa was completed. The Zambezi Bridge and northern extension generated less traffic than anticipated, and it was only in that traffic volumes predicted in were reached.
The rail link was inadequate for heavy loads, being a single narrow-gauge track with sharp curves and steep gradients. Maintenance costs were high and freight volumes were low, so transport rates were up to three times Rhodesian and East African levels.
Although costly and inefficient, the rail link to Beira remained Nyasaland's main transport link up to and beyond independence. A second rail link to the Mozambique port of Nacala was first proposed in , and is the principal route for imports and exports today.
Roads in the early protectorate were little more than trails, barely passable in the wet season. Roads suitable for motor vehicles were developed in the southern half of the protectorate in the s and replaced head porterage, but few all-weather roads existed in the northern half until quite late in the s, so motor transport was concentrated in the south.
Road travel was becoming an alternative to rail, but government regulations designed to promote railway use hindered this development.
When the northern railway extension was completed, proposals failed to be carried out to build a road traffic interchange at Salima and improve roads in the Central Province to help develop Central Nyasaland and Eastern Zambia.
Road transport remained underdeveloped and, at independence, there were few tarmac roads. Air transport began modestly in with weekly Rhodesian and Nyasaland Airways service from an airstrip at Chileka to Salisbury , increased to twice weekly in Blantyre Chileka was also linked to Beira from All flights were discontinued in but in Central African Airways Corporation, backed by the governments of Southern Rhodesia, Northern Rhodesia and Nyasaland resumed services.
Its Salisbury to Blantyre service was extended to Nairobi , a Blantyre- Lilongwe - Lusaka service was added and internal services ran to Salima and Karonga.
The former Nyasaland arm of the corporation became Air Malawi in The first protests against colonial rule came from two sources. Firstly, independent African churches rejected European missionary control and, through Watch Tower and other groups, promoted Millennialism doctrines that the authorities considered seditious.
Secondly, Africans educated by missions or abroad sought social, economic and political advancement through voluntary "Native Associations".
Both movements were generally peaceful, but a violent uprising in by John Chilembwe expressed both religious radicalism and the frustration of educated Africans denied an effective voice, as well as anger over African casualties in the First World War.
After Chilembwe, protests were muted until the early s, and concentrated on improving African education and agriculture. Political representation was a distant aspiration.
However, a declaration by the British government that white settlers north of the Zambezi could not form minority governments dominating Africans stimulated the political awareness.
Agitation by the government of Southern Rhodesia led to a Royal Commission on future association between Northern and Southern Rhodesia, Northern Rhodesia and Nyasaland, or all three territories.
Despite almost unanimous African opposition to amalgamation with Southern Rhodesia, the Bledisloe Commission report of did not entirely rule-out some form of association in the future, provided Southern Rhodesian forms of racial discrimination were not applied north of the Zambezi.
One of its first demands was to have African representation on the Legislative Council, which was conceded in Despite this support, Congress lost momentum until the revival of amalgamation proposals in gave it new life.
Post-war British governments were persuaded that closer association in Central Africa would cut costs, and they agreed to a federal solution, not the full amalgamation that the Southern Rhodesian government preferred.
The main African objections to the Federation were summed up in a joint memorandum prepared by Hastings Banda for Nyasaland and Harry Nkumbula for Northern Rhodesia in These were that political domination by the white minority of Southern Rhodesia would prevent greater African political participation and that control by Southern Rhodesian politicians would lead to an extension of racial discrimination and segregation.
The Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland was pushed through in against very strong African opposition including riots and deaths in Cholo District although there were also local land issues.
In , the NAC opposed federation and demanded independence. Its supporters demonstrated against taxes and pass laws. In early , Congress abandoned its campaign and lost much of its support.
It also scaled-back the fairly modest British post-war development proposals. Coffee, having not lived up to its expectations as the major crop in the colony, was thus dropped as the main symbol of the territory.
Following this grant of Arms, a new flag bearing the leopard and sun was adopted as the flag of the territory. The Nyasaland Blue Ensign contained the arms in the fly without roundel and was used until 23 October when the territory was incorporated into the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland and the Federation flag was adopted.
Following the break-up of the Federation on 31 December , Nyasaland received its independence as the self-governing state of Malawi on 06 July and adopted a new flag without any colonial connotations.
Bruce Berry, 14 Oct The badge on Nyasaland Blue Ensigns, made between and the end of , was set on a white circle. I imagine that existing ensigns continued to be while stocks lasted, but any ensigns made after had no white circle.
In the Colonial Office sent a circular dispatch asking Governors for details of the flags in use, particularly with regard to whether or not the badge on ensigns appeared on a white circle.
In a letter dated 28 April the Nyasaland Governor's Office wrote, "Coat of Arms, which is the badge, is in a white circle, but it would be better without, since the field of the escutcheon is white argent ".
The eighth amendment to the edition of the Admiralty Flag Book included a complete list of all colonial and departmental badges, and whether or not they were to appear on a white circle.
Illustrations of the badge usually show a more rectangular straight-sided shield, and have a darker shade of yellow for the sun, and the coat of the leopard.
David Prothero, 05 Aug Nyasaland Red Ensigns appear to have been used, although unofficially. These flags had the badge placed directly in the fly without the white disc and were probably used by vessels on Lake Nyasa now Lake Malawi.
