Chipata District has inadequate storage space for fertilizer under the Farmer Input Support Programme.

Chipata District Commissioner, Kalunga Zulu has expressed worry with the inadequate storage space for fertilizer under FISP, the Farmer Input Support Programme in the district.
Mr. Zulu told Breeze News that NCZ, the Nitrogen Chemicals of Zambia, does not have enough storage space for compound D fertilizer in the district, a situation that has contributed to the delay in fertilizer coming into the district.
Mr. Zulu says that out of a total of 91, 500 by 50 kilogram bags of fertilizer targeted for the district this year, only 55, 955 by 50 kilogram bags have reached the district.
He has appealed to NCZ to quickly organise adequate storage space to contain the required inputs the company is expected to distribute to farmers in the district.
And Mr. Zulu says that the input distribution exercise under FISP, the Farmer Input Support Program is expected to start before the rainy season.
Efforts to get a comment from the Nitrogen Chemicals of Zambia failed by News time.
