Agricultural Finance in Zambia: How Can Smallholder Inclusion Be Deepened?
Using mixed methods approach, the paper finds that 14.9% of smallholder farmers have access to credit or loan, and Zambia has made progress in addressing financial exclusion. Gaps include: absence of credit registry; failure to recognize movable assets; weaknesses in contract farming; underutilization of ZIAMIS platform; high cost of using movable assets as collateral; political nature of credit guarantee schemes; high cost of participation in guarantee schemes; threatened sustainability of ZAMACE and Warehouse Receipt System; limited insurance uptake; low marketable surplus among smallholders; information asymmetry; intermittent and small demand for loans; exclusive agency agreements in mobile money sector; and poor liquidity among mobile money agents. It recommends: enact legislation to outlaw agency exclusivity; formation of commercially oriented farmer groups; development of credit registry; capacity needs assessment for ZAMACE; pilot procurement and release of FRA reserves; strengthening of lending; use of ZIAMIS; consider moveable assets prudentially; form savings groups; reduced cost of participation in credit guarantee schemes; consider partnering with off-takers and input suppliers; contract farming to have dual-regulation system; product grading; incentive based contracting; provide credit for non-agricultural credit; and contracting arrangements to include extension service that has loan officers.http://www.iapri.org.zm/images/PolicyBriefs/ps_94.pdf

BUSTING THE MYTH: THE DIRECT INPUT SUPPLY SYSTEM IS NOT SYNONYMOUS TO E-FISP
The paper draws data from Ministry of Agriculture and DIS-FISP beneficiary allocations. It notes that DIS is not different from traditional system of input delivery as it still involves government dealing with a few selected suppliers who are required to deliver an agreed quantity of fertiliser and seed to a central warehouse in the district from which input redemption takes place; transportation of inputs is done by selected local transporters paid by government. E-FISP however was introduced to; crowd in more private sector in agro-input distribution; ensure timely delivery and access to inputs by smallholder farmers; promote agricultural diversification; and reduce public expenditure on the delivery of inputs to farmers. It concludes that DIS should not be seen as the substitute for the e-FISP as the latter has not yet been fully implemented to achieve its full benefits thus, stakeholders to continue lobbying government to give e-FISP a chance.

The Paradox of High Mealie Meal Prices amidst Abundance: Maize Grain to Mealie Meal Price Transmission in Zambia.

Using data from the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock, and Central Statistical Office, the paper shows: increased maize to retail roller meal price margins and maize to retail breakfast meal price margins have increased since FRA increased its participation in the market; breakfast meal prices adjust rapidly to changes in maize prices than roller meal prices; and retail breakfast and roller meal prices adjust when maize price changes exceed a threshold. It recommends: FRA should supply maize to all market participants; have a deliberate policy that promotes the development of small mills and hammer mills; limit intervention in maize market through FRA; maintain an open border policy and limit the regulation of grain and mealie meal prices. In a nutshell, grain and milling sectors have performed well, FRA participation has introduced uncompetitive behaviour in milling sector, and millers are more inclined to reduce roller meal prices when grain prices reduce.
