Over 10 thousand farmers in Mumbwa District of the Central Province of Zambia have undergone training in various farming domains.

This farming programme which is headed by World Vision Zambia in conjunction with the Ministry of Agriculture will aid farmers in conservation farming skills to improve their production.

World Vision Area Programme Manager, Alfred Chushi made mention to the media that the organisation has also installed two automatic weather stations worth 135 thousand kwacha.
