The cotton farmers in the country have agreed to sell the commodity at k360 per kilogram (kg) which exceeds the government –set minimum price by k40.

Last month the farmers vowed not to sell their produce at the government’s set minimum price of k320 per kg , arguing that they would lose out.

Cotton Farmers Association (Cofa) President Dickson Gudani has yesterday said that the Cofa met with Minister of Agriculture Lobin Lowe who advised the farmers to discuss with the buyers.

He said they have so far managed to negotiate with some buyers including Malawi Cotton Balaka and Afrasian that have agreed to buy at k360 per kg.

‘’We are negotiating with the Agriculture Development and Marketing Corporation for them to get to the price that others have offered,’’ Gundani said.

He has since urged the farmers in the country to make sure they are selling their cotton in groups for them to sell at better prices of up to k400 per kilogram.
