In a bid to cushion farmers from inflation, the GMB announced it has adjusted the producer price of maize a farmer can get if they surrender their produce to GMB. This was revealed by the GMB CEO Rockie Mutenha who said:
The Grain Marketing Board (GMB) advises that the Government increased the producer prices for maize and traditional grains namely sorghum, millet and rapoko to $4 000 up from $2 100. GMB is encouraging farmers who still have grain to take advantage of the new price and urgently deliver their crop to their nearest depot.
farmers reportedly haled the GMB’s efforts to cushion farmers given the high cost of inputs.
