Scores of resettled farmers converged at Belview Farm in Goromonzi to witness and learn how to improve their yields from Cde Fidelis Gweshe’s blooming tobacco crop.

The growers who had the opportunity to tour over 38 hectares put under irrigated crop said the increase in tobacco production should send a clear message to detractors that the land reform is irreversible. 

Cde Gweshe who hosted the field-day in collaboration with BOKA Auction Floors said both small and large scale farmers can boost production if more resources are channelled towards the sector.

The field-day attracted a cross-section of stakeholders from TIMB, Banks, Agritex officers and farmers to share information on how best to improve the quality and yield of the golden leaf.
