GMB Announces Pre-planting Producer Prices

The Grain Marketing Board (GMB) on Tuesday announced the pre-planting producer prices for major crops.

The pre-planting producer prices will be effective from 1 April next year, GMB Chief Executive Officer Rockie Mutenha said.

The setting of pre-planting producer prices is meant to incentivise and guide farmers on which crops to plant during the summer cropping season and will be reviewed whenever there is a need to do so during the course of the selling season. Said Mutenha:

The provider prices are as follows per metric tonne: maize ZWL$58 553,25; traditional grains ZWL$70 263,90; soya bean ZWL$125 530,17; sunflower ZWL$150 636,20.

Mutenha said over 90 per cent of inputs under Pfumvudza/ Intwasa and the Presidential Input Scheme have been distributed throughout the country.

Meanwhile, the Meteorological Services Department (MSD) forecasted normal to above normal rainfall for the 2021/22 season but to date, rainfall has been erratic in most parts of the country leaving farmers worried for the crops.
