FRA PAYING CASH FOR MAIZE
Written by Mafken FM Newsroom on 1 September 2023
The Food Reserve Agency -FRA- has with immediate effect started paying cash to farmers upon delivery of their maize.
FRA Board Chairperson, Kelvin Hambwezya says this will ensure that farmers get value for their maize and further result in the Agency adequately replenishing National Strategic Food Reserves.
Mr Hambwezya says the decision will also enable farmers to prepare for the upcoming farming season and pay for the FISP Programme that is already in progress countrywide.
Speaking in Statement issued to Mafken FM, Mr. Hambwezya says the Agency is confident that this initiative will further boost agricultural productivity during this year’s farming season.
