The Zambia Environmental Management Agency -ZEMA- has approved two organic fertiliser blending projects in Lusaka worth 3-million dollars.

The two projects will be set up in Chilanga District by Malcut Investments Limited who are planning to inject 2-million dollars and Golden Horse Investments which is expected to pump in one-million dollars in the projects.

The projects target to produce fertilizer from organic material such as chicken manure, vegetative waste, black soil, molasses and saw dust.

ZEMA Acting Director General MAXWELL NKOYA says the organic fertilizer production will service local farmers and contribute towards government’s efforts to provide cheap and readily available fertilizer for the agricultural sector.

Mr. NKOYA says Zambia’s economy is predominantly driven by the agriculture sector and efforts to supplement government’s initiatives have the potential to contribute to food security.

This is contained in a statement availed to ZNBC News in Lusaka.
