I happened to witness winter wheat harvesting a couple of days ago at (somewhere). These pictures may paint a good outlook of winter wheat farming in Zimbabwe. However, this sector is said to be facing a lot of challenges.

Farmers have cited shortages of fuel and electricity for irrigation as their major challenges, while others say they don’t have working capital. This has led to some sections saying it is cheaper to import wheat rather than grow it in Zimbabwe. Hmm, so which is which?
