North Western Province has so far received 1760 metric tonnes of D-Compound fertilizer
out of the total allocation of 14,908 metric tonnes of D-Compound and10, 566.40 metric tonnes of urea for the province for 2020-2021 farming season.
Nyimba Investment Regional Manager Gideon Tembo said the province has continued receiving inputs as preparation for the Farmer Input Support Programme (FISP) during the 2020/2021 farming season.
Mr. Tembo added that Nyimba Investment is delivering the inputs early just like in the last farming season leading to the province expecting to record a bumper harvest for this year’s marketing season.
And speaking after inspecting the offloading of the delivered D-Compound fertilizer in Solwezi, North Western Province Agricultural Coordinator Derrick Simukanzye praised Nyimba Investment for the early delivery of inputs in the province.
Mr. SIMUKANZYE encouraged Nyimba Investment to explore for more warehousing storage spaces for Kasempa district since the district has more farmers under FSP.
He appealed to all the farmers to take advantage of the early delivery of inputs and prepare adequately for the farming season.
The PACO also said Solwezi Depot storage was a holding facility for Solwezi, Kasempa, Mushindamo and Kalumbila Districts due to lack of storage facilities.
