Lufwanyama predicts bumper harvest

By SANFROSSA MANYINDA
WE are expecting a bumper harvest despite the crops having been attacked by fall army worms, Lufwanyama District Commissioner Miniver Mutesa has said.
Ms Mutesa said that with the help from Grizzly Mining and other stakeholders, the district was able to weather the challenging moment of the farming season.
She said that early this year, all chiefdoms in the district received pesticides from the mining giant that was distributed equally and managed to fight the worms.
“I can confirm that a bumper harvest is expected despite having had challenges in the last few months. We thank Grizzly Mining Company for coming on board and helping the farmers in the district,” she said.
Ms Mutesa said that the district would not have been expecting a bumper harvest if help did not come through at the right time.
She said that Lufwanyama would be among districts that would provide food security to other areas whose crops were affected.
She called on other stakeholders to emulate what firms in her district were doing to assist with the food security of the nation.
“We have been working well with the mining firms around here and them rendering help in this field is not a small thing because it involves food security of our people,” she said.
