Banana farmers in Honde Valley have appealed for the extension of Pfumvudza to their sector to boost the production of the crop. Speaking to Diamond FM farmer’s chairperson Aaron Mapondera said farmers are failing to meet procurement costs of inputs for production resulting in poor quality and reduced quantity of the produce.

Meanwhile the government intensified efforts to boost agricultural production through conservation agriculture methods also known as Pfumvudza to guarantee food self-sufficiency and commercialise smallholder agriculture mainly in production of grain.
