Some farmers who have not followed requirements which entail them to first register their crop before delivering it are facing challenges as they cannot smoothly trade their crop.

At one of the auction floors in Harare, long queues have become the order of the day.

However, those farmers who had registered their crop said the process was smooth.

Last week the managing director of one of the tobacco auction floors, Mr. James Mubatapasango reminded farmers of the required procedures.

The tobacco selling season rolled into life last week with expectations being that this season the crop will reach 170 million kilogrammes, surpassing last season’s 120 million kilogrammes.
