People of Kabvumo Ward in Chadiza district have appealed to government to ensure that distribution of subsidized farming inputs is done early.
Ching’ondola village headwoman Veronica Phiri has told Breeze News that farmers received farming inputs very late last year, a situation which affected productivity.
Mrs. Phiri says early distribution of farming inputs will increase crop productivity because farmers will make a proper plan for their farming.
She also called on the government to consider constructing a dam in the area so that livestock farmers can be assisted with their animals.
The headwoman further stated that creation of a dam will also enhance irrigation farming in the area.
Mrs. Phiri says that Kabvumo ward has 33 villages, which all depend on water from two small streams for their animals.
