A TRADITIONAL leader in Chavuma district in North-Western Province has commended Government for beginning the distribution of farm inputs for the 2019/2020 farming season.
Sub-chief Sanjongo said in an interview it is pleasant to note that Government, through the Ministry of Agriculture, has started the distribution exercise.
He said the early delivery of inputs would enabled farmers to access farming inputs on time.
“The people of Chavuma are very happy with Government for starting the distribution of farm inputs for the 2019/2020 farming season. This is commendable,” he said.
Sub-chief Sanjongo, however, appealed to relevant authorities to identify credible agro-dealers that will meet the aspirations of the farmers.
He said in the previous farming season, most agro-dealers engaged swindled a good number of farmers.
“So, it is our prayer that this farming season that reliable agro-dealers will be engaged so that farmers are not manipulated,” he said.
