ED Expects Bumper Harvest On Kwekwe Farm

President Emerson Mnangagwa on Saturday revealed his passion for farming during a familiarisation tour of his Pricabe Farm in Sherwood, Kwekwe.

Rwandan Ambassador to Zimbabwe Mr James Musoni led the delegation that was touring the farm. Speaking on the sidelines of the tour, Mnangagwa said:

Every Saturday and Sunday I come to the farm when I am available. I also have two brothers who are always at the farm. I am not a cellphone farmer.

Send the word Airtime to +263 714 815 229
No extra charges. - - -

My brothers move around researching the latest technology and how it can be used at the farm. As a result, I am expecting between 12 and 14 tonnes per hectare in terms of maize.

We do, however, use cellphones in our production purposes. I have a pumping station that serves nine pivots collecting water from a distance of 7 kilometres and that is when I use a cellphone to operate the latest technology.

… It is all about technology, moving around seeing technology and how to apply it because what is necessary is that each hectare must produce more.

Our land cannot expand anymore. We have to make use of technology to utilise what we have to ensure that we realise more from it. When you have modern technology, you can maximise in terms of production and that way agriculture becomes profitable.

Mnangagwa produces soybeans and maize among other crops. He called on other farmers to use technology to increase production on their farms.

  1. If all farmers who benefited from land reform programme put the land into good use then Zimbabwe will retain its bread basket status.
