Zambian farmers hope to partner with Chinese garlic growers

Zambian farmers are calling on Chinese garlic growers to help them gain more knowledge about garlic growing. Norman Kalenga, chairman for Kasumbalesa Farmers Association, said Zambian garlic growers are intent on growing the cash crop on a commercial basis.

Kalenga said Zambian farmers have been growing on a small scale basis and would like to expand on their garlic farming activities, adding that with Chinese farming technology, farmers will be able to assess when to plant garlic for the optimal effect.

Nigel Ndumba, a trader at Kasumbalesa border, said Chinese garlic has penetrated the Zambian and Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) markets. Ndumba said Chinese farmers should consider investing in farming in Zambia to be closer to the market in Zambia and DRC.
