Zambia lifts ban on maize export

The Southern Times (October 13, 2014) | Lusaka – Zambia has opened maize export after registering a bumper harvest of over three million tonnes last season. The country surpassed the national requirement of 2.8 million tonnes of maize by over half-a-million tonnes to record more than 3.3 million tonnes this year following a government decision to subsidise fertiliser and seed to small-scale farmers.
