Matabeleland Farmers Satisfied With 2018/19 Wheat Producer Price

Farmers in Matabeleland expressed satisfaction with the newly gazetted wheat producer price for the 2018/2019 season. The government has increased the price from $500 to $630 per tonne.

The Zimbabwe Commercial Farmers’ Union vice president, Winston Baggage said the farmers were happy with the new price. He, however, called for the government to provide support in the form of irrigation equipment since wheat is grown during the dry season. He said

We are happy with it, but we would like the Government to come up with a programme to assist the farmers with facilities to enable them to buy centre pivots for irrigation so that we can get more wheat production.

Remember wheat is produced during winter when there will be no rain in the country.
