Lowveld sugar producer Tongaat Hulett has revived winter maize production in Chiredzi, with 329 hectares instantly under development to plant the staple crop. This is part of efforts to mitigate effects of successive crippling droughts experienced across Masvingo in recent seasons.

The move by Tongaat followed a request from Government and the Zanu-PF Masvingo provincial leadership led by secretary for production Cde Josaya Hungwe. At least 1 000 tonnes of maize will be produced under the project, with harvesting of the winter crop expected around September this year.
