ZFU 77th Annual Congress

The Annual Congress is running under the theme: “Tenure Security for Sustainable Agricultural Transformation”. The theme is inspired by ZFU’s realization that farmers in Zimbabwe face many challenges including low productivity, low competitiveness, limited access to input, output and financial markets, high post harvest losses, inadequate investment in technology and on farm infrastructure, low returns, general lack of interest by youths to engage in agriculture, environmental degradation and vulnerability to climate change. Could these challenges and the limited investment and limited capital formation in the communal and resettlement areas resulting in slow agricultural transformation, and limited growth and development in the sector, be explained within the context of tenure security in Zimbabwe?
