He expressed confidence that the service would continue scoring high in agriculture production in 2010 seen from the
ZNS camps in the country among them Mumbwa that has for a third year running continued to produce good yields.

importance along side its major of production and defence.

maize in some selected camps across the nation.
He said that the service was undertaking community responsibilities in partnership with the local authority in areas that needed its
