Southern Province Minister Edify Hamukale says Government will soon establish 27 solar milling plants in Monze District to provide a ready market and add value to high maize being produced in the area.
Dr Hamukale said government was impressed with the high maize production in Monze District during the 2016/2017 farming season.
“Government is really impressed with the bumper maize harvest produced in Monze District and has plans to set up 27 milling plants in an effort to provide market for the commodity as well as create employment opportunities,” said Dr Hamukale.
Dr Hamukale said Government was aware of the challenges people in rural areas faced in marketing their produce, especially maize. He also reiterated Government’s commitment to ensuring that all feeder roads in the Province are worked on on a regular basis so as to provide farmers easy access to markets.
