AGRO INPUT JIGSAW PUZZLE SOLVED- HH

By Scoop Reporter

PRESIDENT Hakainde Hichilema says the Comprehensive Agriculture Support Programme (CASP) has roped in the extension services which were missing under the Farmers Input Support Programme (FISP) to make the programme effective.

President Hichilema says the CASP concept will ensure increased productivity by farmers and that this is the reason Government is hiring 500 extension officers to actualise the objective.

“We are replacing Farmers Input Support Programme (FISP) with Comprehensive Agriculture Support Programme (CASP) because FISP was focused on inputs and production to the exclusion of extension services.  What we have done is to ensure that the missing component, extension services, is addressed so that farmers can increase their productivity. This is the reason we are hiring 500 extension officers,” President Hichilema said.

    I have never really supported FISP especially that people stay for years without being weaned off

    It’s a progressive move , though we need at least to see people graduate from this scheme to be independent than being beneficiaries for life. We need to see the objectives and goals of the government on this project.

    There has been a lot of issues on FISP, I hope this will resolve the problems.

    My prayer is let people who are genuinely on the program receive the support. Not what used to happen with fisp it became a political line .
