Farmers in Chavuma district in North Western have commended government for promptly responding to the plight of those whose fields were invaded by army worms.
The farmers commended government for supplying them with the necessary chemicals to combat the pests.
Farmers representative, Vincent Kavungu said they were grateful to government for showing commitment by quickly containing the situation.
Mr Kavungu was speaking when the Member of Parliament Victor Lumayi inspected fields that have been invaded by the pests in Chiyeke.
He said the spraying of fields by agriculture officers was a relief and called on government to continue helping other affected farmers in the district to avoid a poor harvest.
Earlier in the week, government dispatched additional chemicals and early maturing maize seed to North-western Province to enable farmers replant their crops.
