Government through the ministry of agriculture has said it is investigating the case of fake fertilizers which is being sold on the market.

Minister responsible, Sam Kawale said this as he was reacting to a video circulating on social media of a certain man complaining that he was sold fertilizer made by mixing soil with lime.

Writing on his official Facebook page, Kawale said that authorities are already on the ground investigating the matter.

“I would like to let you know that your Ministry of Agriculture is aware of this issue. Apart from MBS, ACB, and Police being alerted, our officers in the Department of Agriculture Research Services are already on the ground investigating,” said Kawale.

Kawale also added that the said fertilizer is not part of the Affordable inputs Program (AIP). According to Kawale, fertilizers under the AIP, is safely kept in SFFRFM warehouses across the country ready to be dispatched to selling points.

He then revealed that in the next parliament meeting, his ministry will table a fertilizer bill “that will regulate and certify inoculants, organic fertilizers, and inorganic fertilizers across the country, so that you have a wide range of genuine fertilizers to use.”

He then assured Malawians that government is “committed to serving you better and protecting you from any harm that might come to your farming business because we know that the Agriculture sector is the backbone of our economy.”
