Pay Fertilizer Suppliers Or We Quit Planting For Food And Jobs Programme – Farmers Threaten



Peasant Farmers under government’s flagship programme, “Planting for Food and Jobs” have expressed worry over how their farming businesses are gradually dying off following lack of fertilizers for their farming activities.

According to farmers, their suppliers are not able to supply them with the fertilizers again because they said government is feeling reluctant to pay the debts of their suppliers after distributing farmers with fertilizers for 2021 farming season.

Currently these farmers say their livelihoods are at stake and if the government fails to address their concerns, they will be left with no other option than to quit farming, a situation which they believe will impact negatively on the Planting for Food and Jobs Programme.

Available data has indicated that Agriculture sector has seen laudable increase and the roe of Small-holder farmers cannot be overemphasized after actively partaking in the Planting for Job Programme by the NPP Government.
