Zimbabwe Farmers Union Provincial Manager Dennis Chisevure has challenged small holder farmers to invest in irrigation to counter poor rainy seasons. Mr Chisevure urged farmers to not depend on dry land farming as the country is exposed to erratic rainfall, making supplementary irrigation necessary for successful agricultural activities, further saying irrigation mitigates against droughts and mid-season dry spells thereby enabling farmers to grow crops all year round.
