Aside from these activities there’s also the Mwomboshi Dam, one of the biggest irrigation schemes in the country, aimed at boosting crop production in Chisamba.
Farming is no longer just a retirement plan but a profitable business so take advantage of this agricultural asset for the future!
Chisamba was created out of Chibombo district in 2013, and is one of the twelve districts in Central Province.
Both commercial and small-scale farmers in this district grow a good amount of maize and through bumper crop production they contribute to national food security.
Chisamba has fertile soils that support any kind of crops that you’d want to grow on your farm. The district also receives a favorable amount of rains, usually about 1000 to 2000 milliliters every year- which is enough for crop production, aquaculture and livestock farming.
Chisamba district is fed by three rivers, the Mwomboshi, Musuwishi and Mulungushi. It’s also surrounded by the Miombo woodlands, which are a designated bird sanctuary.
Currently the feeder roads are being rehabilitated to ease transportation of farm inputs and implements and the council is in the process of putting up a filling station and a shopping mall in the district.
There’s so much to commend the Chisamba area!
