Government called upon to help in ensuring that cotton companies offer better prices this year.

Cotton farmers in Chief Chinunda’s area in Chipata district have called on government to help in ensuring that cotton companies offer better prices during this year’s marketing season.
Chamakanga Section chairman, Mgaiwa Banda, told Breeze News that unless government through CBZ, the Cotton Board of Zambia monitor the marketing process fully, farmers will not fully benefit from the sale of their crop.
He also explained that concerns among cotton farmers are now growing, over the delay in the official announcement of prices for this year’s market.
Mr. Banda says this is worrying farmers, that companies may offer low prices like last year.
And Mr. Banda has appealed to CAZ, the Cotton Association of Zambia, to be more proactive and represent farmers fully.
