Zimbabwe Agricultural Society (ZAS)’s constitution has been amended, paving way for the institution to focus on forming developmental policies as opposed to just showcasing products and services.

It emerged at the society’s annual general meeting in Harare that there is need to overhaul the constitution to ensure the promotion of farming business and diversify revenue generation streams.

Directors for the society therefore approved amendments to the constitution, with ZAS Board Chairman, Mr Ngoni Kudenga saying focus is now on farming development.

ZAS CEO, Dr Anxious Masuka said the amended constitution should provide opportunities for the society to work with agro-based companies on value addition.

The board members also endorsed the society’s audited financial results for the year ending September 2017, where operating surplus before interest and depreciation grew by 122 percent to $544 239 compared to an investment loss of $28 838 in 2016.
