Zimbabwe urged to seek new ways to foster growth in horticulture

Zimbabwe should invest further into finding ways to foster the growth of the horticulture sector if they want it to continue being the country's second largest foreign currency earner, says Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Agriculture, Mechanisation and Irrigation Development, Ringson Chitsiko. 

He said this during his speech at the Prime SeedCo field day at the Stapleford Research Station yesterday.

“We are here to put our thoughts together and work towards returning the horticulture sector to its original second place after tobacco in respect to agricultural exports, even beyond tobacco and be the number one agricultural exporting subsector in Zimbabwe,” Engineer Chitsiko said.
