Farmers happy with K170/Kg maize price – Admarc

89

Agricultural Development and Marketing Corporation (Admarc) has said farmers are satisfied with the buying price for maize which is K170 per Kilogram in the country’s Admarc depots.

Speaking to local media, public relations officer for Admarc Agnes Ndovie said farmers have accepted the price and it seems that they have no problems with it.

She explained that the exercise of buying maize from small scale farmers in parts of the country is also going well.

“The process of buying the maize is progressing well because farmers are satisfied with the current price,” she said.
According to Ndovie, they are expected to buy between 20 and 30 metric tonnes of maize from farmers across the country.

Ndovie added that Admarc is looking forward to buying more maize from the farmers and expressed hope that this will happen as they have full faith in themselves as well as the farmers.

The Admarc public relations officer however expressed concern over some middlemen and traders whom she said are duping farmers that they work for the corporation.

  1. Yeah… True that Mr Mdothi….
    I can voc on that as an eye witness…
    I’ve seen traders (i be part) giving the K20 to those managing the depoz then getting the rest… And by the following morning, admarc has used the money sent to the depo…
    The poor farmer hears it when all is over and sales to the vendor…

  16. Then later u will sell the same maize @300/kg to poor people then you call it food security. God will punish u. All those uncountable billions of kwachas the gov. is misusing, u can`t open huge farms to produce maize and sell @ cheaper price and feed the nation? What can u get frm poor pipo? Amalima kuti azidya osati kugulitsa musamawanamize. Limani chanu chimanga ndindalama zamisonkho mukutolerazo. Tsegulani mafamu anthu apezeko ntchito.

  18. They are not happy. Why making things different at all level. There is no money in admarc to buy maize from farmers, anytime when pple wnt to sel their commodity they are told that there is no cash. Vist buyng stations and see how farmerz are suffering. Out of 200bags of 60kgs maize i jst manage to sel 4bags only and 196bags are there waitn 4 money at admarc. How do you expect farmerz to be happy? BUSHIRI AKUBWERA KUZAGULA PAMTENGO WA 210MW PER KG
