The Zambia National Farmers Union ZNFU has urged government to improve on the maize floor price in the country to stop farmers from smuggling the commodity to other countries.
ZNFU President Jervis Zimba says Zambia’s maize price is the cheapest in the region, further appealing to government to ensure that the Food Reserve Agency offers a better price for the commodity next year.
He was speaking in Petauke Today during the launch of the 2020/2021 farming season.
I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.
