Zimbabwe: New horticulture farmers need to be equipped

Zimbabwe`s horticulture landscape is currently going through a period of metamorphosis from one dominated by large-scale commercial producers to an industry that has opened its doors to small-scale to medium producers, the bulk of whom are making their debut appearances.

While a lot has been done and said about the industry, very little seems to have been done to equip the newcomers into the industry with the basic skills of survival in a sector that thrives more on quality rather than quantity.

The newcomers have to grapple with the harsh reality of reading and interpreting the phytosanitary and sanitary rules that international and export standards demand.

Of course they are a prerequisite and an essential ingredient in the general success of horticultural production yet they can easily qualify for restrictive rather than corrective requirements.
