A lawmaker in Malawi's central region district of Ntcheu is asking government to award contracts to firms that are able to deliver.

This comes amidst observations that Farm Input Subsidy Program supples usually fail to meet expectations.

In the past years most of the suppliers did not have structures in remote areas and had challenges in transporting the inputs to beneficiaries.

The development follows a report presented to Ntcheu district council by agriculture sub- committee of the council on how the program has performed in the district for the 2016/17 farming season.

Speaking to Capital FM, legislator for Ntcheu west constituency expressed concern on how beneficiaries in his constituency were struggling to access the farm inputs.

Mwai Kamuyambeni disclosed that people were forced to cover a distance of close to 90 kilometers to buy the inputs in which they could also spend a day or two days before accessing them.

"People in my constituency had difficulties in accessing the inputs during the implementation due to mobility challenges.

Many were forced to cover long distances with other sleeping at selling points to access the inputs," Kamuyambeni explained.

The Ntcheu West legislator however suggested to government to assess contractors before awarding them contracts.

He stated that this will help to address mobility challenges faced by benefiting communities during the 2016 /17 program.

During the 2016/17 farming season, government awarded 60% contract to over 20 private traders in the procurement and retailing of the inputs to benefiting farming households.

The remaining 40% was shared by government controlled companies thus Agriculture Development Marketing Corporation (ADMARC) and Smallholder Farmers Fertilizer Revolving Fund Malawi (SFFRFM).
