A TRADITIONAL leader in Siavonga district has commended the government for the early distribution of inputs for this year's farming season.

Chief Sinadambwe said that the early delivery of farming inputs would assist farmers produce more food as compared to the last farming season especially in Southern Province.

He said the government had revealed its seriousness in trying to improve food production in the country.

Chief Sinadambwe noted that the process of delivering agricultural inputs late contributed to poor yields, hence the need to deliver the inputs on time in order to have a more improved food security next year.

He said he did not know how his subjects were going to buy the inputs because the poor yield experienced last farming season had resulted in not having enough income.

Chief Sinadambwe said when the inputs were delivered in the rainy season, they usually go to waste because of the bad roads and streams especially in rural areas.

He has since urged the government to expedite the distribution process before the onset of the rainy season.
