Saudi Arabia has donated fertilizer and maize seeds to Malawi government

The donation consists of 50 metric tonnes of UREA, 50 metric tonnes of NPK and 1000 metric tonnes of seeds, approximately 10 kg each.

Upon receiving the donation, Secretary of Agriculture, Dixie Kampani, said the fertilizer and seeds are timely since they will help families who were greatly affected by Cyclone Freddy.

Kampani mentioned that the ministry is also aiming to assist farmers who are pursuing winter cropping in order to supplement the current crop production.

He emphasized that Affordable Inputs Program (AIP) is currently at an advanced stage.
