MAIZE production is labour-intensive making it difficult for small-scale farmers cultivating between four to ten hectares.
Government should empower us small-scale farmers with farming equipment to help us migrate from hoe cultivation to machinery to increase our production.
We have passion for farming but are limited by lack of equipment and other resources.
Government will do well to put in place an empowerment policy on farming equipment.
This will help the government realise its vision of making agriculture the main economic stay.
