Mr. Banda says that there is need for government to quickly announce the floor price for maize as this will help farmers make informed decisions.
He stated that as FRA, the Food Reserve Agency waits for maize moisture content to reach the recommended percentage, it is important that farmers know the buying price.
And Mr. Banda appealed to people in the ward not to sell all their produce due to imminent hunger in the area.
