 Liquid fertiliser distrution commences in Northern Province

The distribution of Liquid fertiliser in in Northern Province has been flagged off by Geoveda Lenders Limited, a company that produces natural boosters and organic fertilizer.

Acting Northern Province Permanent Secretary, Lewis Mwape, who officiated at the distribution exercise in Kasama, said government was ready to partner with the private sector organisations which are interested in the welfare of the Zambian people.

Mr Mwape said companies such as Geoveda Lenders which manufactures and processes organic products such as liquid fertiliser, are of great benefit to Zambian farmers.

He said that organic fertiliser has an added advantage that will attract farmers because it is affordable, improves soil texture, increases the soil’s water retention abilities and stimulates healthy root development.

“Organic fertiliser is a game changer to agriculture as it will reduce the cost of buying synthetic fertilizer, I want encourage other scientists to come up with initiatives that will promote the green economy,’’ he said.

And Geoveda Lenders Regional Coordinator, Felix Chiwela, said the demand for organic fertiliser is overwhelming hence the need for increased production of such fertilisers.

Mr Chiwela also said his company was facing transportation challenges to get the fertilizer to the users, due to overwhelming demand.
