Tanzanian farmers venture into avocado farming

Several farmers in Tanzania's Rombo District are venturing into avocado farming, which they said is paying more and less expensive to maintain. One of the farmers in the district said he took over much of the coffee farm and changed the crops his parents were cultivating and started cultivating avocados, next year which he expects 100 percent in profit from such farming.

He said he has had indigenous avocado trees that were not for commercial purposes, and now that he has been provided with free avocado seedlings by the Matonyok Organization, he will be able to grow commercial avocado and his market is huge which will boost his revenues.
