Farmers in Wedza have been urged to put the election period behind them and focus on production as they prepare for the coming season.
Mashonaland East Minister of State Cde David Musabayana told farmers and other stakeholders at the Wedza Agricultural Show that they should remain calm and focus on production in the post-election period.
“The court processes brought about by the opposition MDC Alliance should not distract you from focusing on production. Our president won the elections and we are now just waiting for his inauguration which is now waiting for the court processes,” said Cde Musabayana.
Guest of honour at the event veteran agronomist Mr Ivan Craig said farmers should know that agricultural shows are not just for exhibiting but also a market place for their products.
“These agricultural shows should afford you the opportunity to market your products so that you have access to local and international markets,” Mr Craig said.
Farmers who excelled were given prizes ranging from ploughs, seeds, fertilisers and pesticides.
