CALL FOR THE PROMOTION OF OTHER CROPS
Written by admin on March 13, 2020
The Country is focusing too much on the growing of maize at the expense of other crops, the National Food and Nutrition Commission has observed.
Commission Head Public Health and Community Nutrition, Fred Mubanga says Zambians can also grow sorghum and millet which are drought resistant.
Mr. Mubanga says it is good that the ministry of agriculture is moving in the area of crop diversification.
Mr. Mubanga was speaking on the sidelines of the Civil Society Scaling Up Nutrition Alliance, Action Aid and Global Citizens youth commemoration under the theme “ I take the lead in ensuring that Zambia is food and Nutrition secure” today.
