Zimbabwean wheat farmers delivered 157,000 tonnes of wheat last year, more than double the 60,641 tonnes produced in 2019.

The rise was due to increased government support to farmers and the output will enable the country to meet nearly 50 percent of its wheat requirements.

The 157,000 tonnes fell short of the targeted 160,000 tonnes, according to Wednesday’s The Herald, a state-controlled newspaper.

“About 69 percent of the wheat (157,000 tonnes) achieved a premium grade while the balance fell into the utility grade,” the newspaper said.

Zimbabwe requires 400,000 tonnes of wheat annually to ensure a reliable supply of bread and other confectionaries.

The country imports some of the wheat to cover the deficit and to enhance the quality of bread flour. Enditem
