Wheat Farmers Want Govt To Pay 20 Percent Foreign Currency

In an interview with The Chronicle, the Zimbabwe Wheat Board chairperson Mr Givemore Mesoemvura said Government should pay 20 percent foreign currency on deliveries made to the Grain Marketing Board so that farmers are able to buy inputs.

He said farmers are now buying inputs in foreign currency. Said Mesoemvura:

We held a wheat conference in Harare last week. At the conference, the wheat farmers revealed that they no longer afford to buy inputs using local currency given the prevailing situation in the market. So, they requested if they can receive 20 percent of the payment in forex so that they are able to procure inputs for the next season. As the wheat board, we saw it reasonable to lobby Government on their behalf to have the farmers receive 20 percent of the payment in forex.
