TRYNESS TEMBO, Chisamba
GOVERNMENT has urged farmers to plant crops that are drought resilient in light of the dry spells experienced in most parts of the country in the current farming season.
Ministry of Agriculture Permanent Secretary Songowayo Zyambo said Southern Province has been badly hit by the dry spell, hence farmers need to consider planting cassava, millet and sorghum, which are drought resilient, if they are to remain food secure. http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
