He stated that government’s inability to pay suppliers is the contributing factor.

He bemoaned the reduction of fertiliser from 50 percent to 38 percent for farmers is having a toll on their production.

Presenting a report on 2020 monitoring, the Head of Programmes and Advocacy at PFAG, Dr Charlse Kwowe Nyaaba, stated that the findings showed that there was a cartel that smuggled and hoarded in 2020 which affected farmers and this has been a cause of worry in the Planting for Food and Jobs.
