Stakeholders in the command agriculture programme say they are fully behind this government initiative which is aimed at ensuring food security in the country.

This came out during the National Command Centre’s belated Christmas party that was held in Harare.

Sable Chemicals Production Manager, Mr Allen Manhanga reaffirmed their commitment to all government agricultural programmes that ensure food security in the country.

The Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Lands, Agriculture and Resettlements, Mr Ringson Chitsiko said optimal use of little available water by farmers is key in augmenting ground water supply.

Introduced at the start of the 2016/17 farming season, the command agriculture programme has since been extended to other areas such as livestock and fish production in order to enhance agricultural productivity among farmers.
