The Ministry of Agriculture says that it is not too late for farmers to start getting inputs under the e-voucher system.
Chipata District Agriculture Coordinator, Michael Ngulube says that maize is not the only crop that farmers can use for the inputs.
Mr. Ngulube says that farmers can use the inputs to grow other crops including maize using irrigation farming.
He stated that government has been encouraging diversification so that farmers do not restrict themselves to growing maize.
Mr. Ngulube was speaking to Breeze News when reacting to concerns that the rain season is nearing the end and that there is no need to collect the inputs.
He explained that the e-voucher cards are still valid to farmers that would want to use the inputs to grow vegetables.
