Lesotho to increase fruit production

The Lesotho Competitiveness and Financial Inclusion Project, working together with the Lesotho National Farmers’ Association (LENAFU) will teach farmers the necessary skills to increase fruit production.

Senior Public Relations Officer Mantletse Maile from the Ministry of Trade, Industry, Business Development and Tourism indicated that they intend to train farmers so they can have skills to meet the needs of Basotho by ensuring that they make fruits available to stop importing them and grow the economy of Lesotho.

She further pointed out that funds will also be available to respond to the requirements of farmers and therefore increase fruit production in the country. She added that the event to be held in Hlotse this week is expected to attract farmers’ representatives.

In early 2022, Lesotho Apple Growers had exported about 30 bins thus equivalent to 90,000 of Top Red and Golden Delicious apples to South Africa.
