Seed producers are developing new crop hybrids that adapt to the climate change phenomenon.
Agronomist John Bhasera said his company is moving towards producing seed hybrid varieties that adapt to conditions necessitated by climate change.
Addressing farmers at plot 14 of Lilifordia farm in Zvimba during a maize field day, Mr Bhasera said this will also see the introduction of varieties with a reduced maturity period.
“Farmers should diversify agricultural activities in order to broaden revenue streams and spread possible risks associated with farming,” he said.
National Assembly member for Zvimba east Honourable Tawanda Tungamirai advised farmers to always account for costs so as to be able to determine profit margins.
Host farmer Archbishop Loveness Manhango attributed his successful farming career to adherence to agricultural practices as advised by Agricultural Extension officers.
