Farmers Organisation Limited has started training youths in some parts of the country on repairing and maintenance of spray equipment.
The organisation said it had embarked on the move as a way of helping the youth start small-scale businesses.
Farmers Organisation Limited Supervisor responsible for spray repairs and maintenance, Boniface Nyirongo, said the training would also expose youths to potential markets.
“We have trained some staff members who are assisting farmers with the repairs. I actually advise small-scale farmers to come to Farmers Organisation and we will take them through the process,” he said.
One of the beneficiaries of the initiative, Clinton Mafunga, thanked Farmers Organisation for the training.
“This is something unique. This is why I am well equipped,” Mafunga said.
