The current dry spell affecting the South-western parts of the country mainly the Matabeleland provinces and Bulawayo is expected to continue, the Meteorological Services Department (MSD) said in a statement.
The dry spell affecting southern and western parts of the country which are Bulawayo Metropolitan, Matabeleland North, Matabeleland South, Midlands and Masvingo provinces is expected to last for about seven days.
… This lull in rainfall over much of the country may prolong, thus farmers in crop production areas are urged to consult their local Agricultural Extension Officers for advice on best methods of moisture conservation.
The dry spell is expected to last for a whole week. The MSD earlier forecasted normal ro below normal rainfall for the 2018/19 season.
Meanwhile, the MSD is advising farmers to make the most of the dry spell by weeding their fields.
