Tanzania on Wednesday vowed to address market-related challenges facing pyrethrum growers in the east African nation.

Mary Mwanjelwa, Deputy Minister for Agriculture, made the remarks when responding to complaints raised by pyrethrum growers during her visit in south-western Tanzania’s region of Mbeya.

“We’re fully aware of the challenges and very soon they will be resolved,” she said.

Pyrethrum grower from Itaga village in Mbeya Rural District, Gideon Ngonela appealed to the Tanzanian government to assist the farmers with better technology to improve the product’s quality of pyrethrum flowers.

Ngonela said that farmers need better technology to dry their pyrethrum flowers during rainy season before taking them to the market.

“There are farmers who have failed to harvest their crop this year due to lack of the appropriate technology,” he said.

He also cited lack of reliable market as another challenge the pyrethrum growers face from the south-eastern parts of the country. Enditem
