Over two hundred farmers in Mbala have not yet received their fertilizer for this year’s farming season.
The farmers who stormed ZANIS office this morning complained that their crops which have reached the stage of applying top dressing fertilizer will go to waste.
The visibly annoyed farmers said they had wasted a lot of money on transport coming to the boma with the view of collecting the fertilizer from Nyiombo Investment depots.
The farmers lamented that promises by Nyiombo Investment officials to give them the farming inputs have yielded no results.
They also said some farmers have only received urea without D. Compound fertilizer.
The Farmers are now appealing to government to intervene in the matter to avert wastage of crops and resources they spent on cultivation.
Efforts to get the comment from the District agriculture Co-coordinator failed by press time.
