Partner with Chinese to foster diversification in the agriculture sector, farmers told

A grain trader expert has urged Zambian small scale farmers to partner with Chinese to foster diversification in the agriculture sector in Zambia.

Chambila Simwinga, president of the Grain Traders Association of Zambia, said that it was important that Zambian small scale farmers learn the Chinese technology to maximize their productivity for increased national food security.

“It is important that our farmers should learn new technologies from countries like China,” he said.

Speaking in an interview with Xinhua, Simwinga also said that Zambian farmers should not concentrate on growing maize but diversify to grow other crops that can sell on the international market.
