ZAMBIA NATIONAL FARMERS UNION (ZNFU) EXPRESSES WORRY AT THE RATE AT WHICH WHEAT FOR THIS YEAR’S FARMING SEASON IS BEING EXPORTED

ZAMBIA NATIONAL FARMERS UNION (ZNFU) HAS EXPRESSED WORRY AT THE RATE AT WHICH WHEAT FOR THIS YEAR’S FARMING SEASON IS BEING EXPORTED TO THE NEIGHBOURING COUNTRIES AND OTHER REGIONS.
ZNFU PRESIDENT JERVIS ZIMBA SAYS THERE IS NEED FOR GOVERNMENT TO PUT IN PLACE REGULATORY MEASURES TO ENSURE THAT THE EXPORTING PROCESS IS CONTROLLED AND THE NATION REMAINS WITH ENOUGH WHEAT.
MR ZIMBA HAS STATED THAT CURRENTLY THE COMMODITY WHICH IS AVAILABLE ON THE MARKET IS ENOUGH TO SUSTAIN THE DEMAND BUT IF THE EXPORTING PROCESS IS NOT CONTROLLED, IT WILL NOT LAST.
HE SAYS EVEN THOUGH THE COUNTRY RECORDED A 15 PERCENT WHEAT PRODUCTION IN THIS YEAR’S FARMING SEASON SURPASSING LAST YEAR’S PRODUCTION, THERE SHOULD BE MEASURES PUT IN PLACE TO ENSURE THAT THE LOCAL MARKET IS NOT SUFFOCATED.
