Nyiombo failure to deliver fertiliser to affect yields in Mbala

Over 3000 peasant farmers in Mbala have not received compound D- compound fertilizer for the 2012-2013 farming season.

Nsokolo Camp chairperson, Alex Chilela complained that the delay by Nyiombo Investment to deliver fertilizer in good time will have a devastating effect on their yields.

He said the crops which have reached the stage of applying top dressing fertilizer will just go to waste.

The chairperson further lamented that the promises made by Nyiombo Investment officials to give them the farming inputs have yielded no results.

Mr Chilela is now appealing to Government to quickly intervene in the matter.

The areas that have been heavily affected are Nsokolo, Mambwe, Mpande and Sikalembe camps.
