Letter to the Editor

Farmers should be wary of tricksters

Dear editor,
THE rainy season has just begun and it marks the beginning of the farming season.
For increased productivity, there is need for farmers to buy their inputs like chemicals, fertiliser and seeds, among others.
In view of the above, there will be many tricksters selling fake farming inputs to dupe or rather swindle the unsuspecting farmers.
For instance, the tricksters may request farmers to deposit money in a mobile money account before the latter could access the farming inputs.
Once the money is sent, a trickster would then switch off their phone. To avoid being swindled, farmers should buy their inputs from known companies and depots.
Farmers should also ignore text messages requesting them to send money in order to access farming inputs.
