Over 5000 farmers in Kasama risk losing their farm produce to agro dealers.
This follows the alleged delay by government to pay the agro dealers who supplied farming inputs on credit to farmers in the 2016-2017 farming season.
The agro dealers who have since given government up to Monday next week to pay them failure to which they will confiscate the maize from farmers.
And other agro dealers say their families have become destitute as a result of failure by government to pay them on time.
They have since urged government to revert to the old system of supplying inputs to farmers if the use of the e-voucher cards has failed.
