Some farmers in Chongwe District’s Chinkuli area have expressed worry over the emergence of wireworms in their fields.

 

Wireworms attack the maize seedling before it germinates.

 

The farmers interviewed by 5fm news expressed worry that they risk having a poor harvest next year.

 

Meanwhile, the farmers are concerned with the delays in accessing farming inputs.

 

Efforts to get a comment from the ministry of agriculture proved futile by broadcast time.
