Tanzanian govt to spend $4.3m for oil palm farming


Tanzania has set aside $4.3 million (R60mn) to boost cultivation of oil palm as part of its strategy to end the importation of edible oils, Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa said on Monday.
Majaliwa revealed this when speaking in the western Tanzania's region of Kigoma soon after inspecting an oil palm farm of the National Service Department (JKT) Bulombora camp.
The Tanzanian leader said the money will be spent in developing the crop so that its farmers are on the same level as growers of other cash crops. He also directed the Ministry of Agriculture to prepare a demonstration farm in the region where farmers can learn modern methods of oil palm production.
