Govt Urges White Farmers To Enter Into Joint Ventures

Lands, Agriculture and Rural Resettlement Minister Perrance Shiri urged white commercial farmers who do not have land to enter into joint ventures with resettled farmers.

He said this at a meeting with former white commercial farmers at Esbank Farm in Mazowe on Friday. Shiri said his ministry will endorse such agreements to safeguard the interests of both parties. Said Shiri:

Land is a finite resource; unfortunately it is supposed to sustain a geometrically increasing population. Therefore, for those white commercial farmers who cherish to undertake farming, but unfortunately do not have land you are at liberty to scout for partners to get into co-operative farming arrangements such as joint ventures and contract farming agreements. Government will, through the Ministry of Lands, Agriculture and Rural Resettlement endorse agreements with a view to safeguard the interests of both parties to the agreement.
