ZAMBIAN GOVT SUCCEEDS IN CONTAINING ARMY WORMS

The authorities in Zambia’s Central Province have succeeded in containing the attack by army worms which were ravaging maize fields there, says Central Province Minister Sydney Mushanga.

Mushanga told the Zambian National Broadcasting Corporation that the provincial authorities went flat out to deal with the situation soon after the alert was issued by distributing the necessary pesticides to farmers.

Mushanga said the government was working round the clock to deal with challenges of the e-voucher programme to enable farmers to obtain inputs needed for cultivation of crops, assuring them that the situation would be rectified soon.

Meanwhile, Mushanga urged agro dealers not to exploit farmers by setting high pricing for their products.

He said boosting agriculture should be everyone’s honest effort.
