Zambian Government Encourages Intercropping, New Farming Methods

The government has said new and improved farming methods were needed to promote sustainable agriculture in Eastern Province.

Eastern Province Deputy Permanent Secretary Patrick Mwanawasa said today’s farming activities should not destroy the environment but must ensure that the land was usable by future generations.

Mr Mwanawasa said this during the field day at Msekera Research Station in Chipata district on Wednesday.And when he toured the laboratory at the research center, Mr Mwanawasa asked the centre to submit a report on the challenges faced so that the provincial administration could also help in finding solutions.

He said many other parts of the province and the country rely on the research station and that it should therefore be up to date in its operations.
