Zimbabwe urged to seek new ways to foster growth in horticulture

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

He told this during his speech at Prime SeedCo field day at 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 number one agricultural exporting subsector in Zimbabwe,” Engineer Chitsiko said.
