Costs Of Farming Inputs Skyrocket Ahead Of Farming Season

According to the recommended prices from Seed-Co, the minimum price for a 25 kg bag of maize seed ranges from $250 to $365.
The Grain Marketing Board (GMB) pays farmers $390 per tonne which may make farming less viable for farmers.
A few weeks back a 10 kg pack of maize seed used to cost between $32 and $35 but is now going for $100.32.
