PROCESS OF FINALIZING CONTRACTS WITH FERTILIZER SUPPLIERS TO BE COMPLETED BEFORE THE END OF THIS WEEK

Government has disclosed that the process of finalizing contracts with fertilizer suppliers is currently underway and is expected to be completed before the end of this week in readiness for distribution for the 2022/23 farming season.

Agriculture Minister Mtolo Phiri says government is not concerned about the seeds as they are locally produced while fertilizer is not , hence the reason government is trying to conclude contracts with fertilizer suppliers to avoid delays in the distribution of fertilizer to farmers.

In an interview with Phoenix News, Mr. Phiri adds that government will in the 2022/23 farming season increase fertilizer suppliers that will be involved in the distribution exercise to farmers in each province.

Mr. Phiri has since assured that the distribution of fertilizer is expected to commence next month.
