Agric minister predicts a maize bumper harvest


Agriculture Minister Reuben Mtolo Phiri has predicted that the country will record a maize bumper harvest in the 2021/2022 farming season. Mr. Phiri is basing his optimism on the maize which he says looks promising in some parts of the country.  He adds that the measures government had put it place to contain the fall of army worms and provision of early maturing seed to farmers for replanting in areas affected by dry spells gives confidence that the country will record a bumper harvest.
