Farmers in Uzumba say they have embraced growing small grains as they strive to guarantee food security at community level in  the face of climate change.

After having grown other crops that such as maize for years without any meaningful harvest, Uzumba farmers Tatenda Chisango and Itai Mugambe of Mukuruanopamaenza Ward told guests at a field day in Chisango village that small grains like sorghum and millet are the way to go as they do well under the current climate conditions and also earn them money to look after their families.

Uzumba constituency legislator Cde Simbaneuta Mdarikwa says farmers should start growing small grains to improve food security.

The farmers have managed to grow tomatoes using proceeds from the small grains which have a ready market in the area.
