Presidential input scheme to benefit an additional 1 million households

Addressing stakeholders attending a Command Agriculture coordination workshop in Harare yesterday, Finance Minister Patrick Chinamasa said that the Presidential Input Scheme will benefit an additional 1 million households in the 2017-18 farming season.

Said Chinamasa:

We are committing ourselves as Treasury to supporting agriculture in a bigger way in the 2017-18 season. We are going to support the Presidential Inputs Support Scheme to 1.8 million households unlike in the past season where we supported 800 000 vulnerable households.

We are going to extend for a further year the support we are giving to cotton production. While the private sector supports wheat production, we will also support wheat, soyabeans and livestock production which will be under Command Agriculture. We have played our part in the same way that the private sector has played its part. Treasury has never spent as much resources as we did this past season.
