Over 3.4 million households benefit from AIP

Over 3.4 million farming households have each bought two bags of fertilizer and through the Affordable Input Programme (AIP) which represents 91% of the targeted beneficiaries.

Ministry of Agriculture spokesperson, Gracian Lungu, disclosed this in an interview with YFM as the program is coming on an end on February 20, 2021.

Lungu said although the program faced numerous challenges including network challenges and unavailability of suppliers at the markets, many farmers managed to redeem the inputs which he said is a good development.

He however assured the public of a more effective program in the next growing season saying they have already started rectifying some of the main challenges that affected the program.
