Small holder farmers in Chimanimani East with early planted maize are experiencing crop rot following the recent rains received in the district.

In an interview, Chimanimani District Agronomist Lazarus Nhamarare said the challenge has brought in low hopes to farmers who were expecting a bumper harvest as the the area is known for producing quality maize, further urging farmers with maize ready for harvesting to start the process before they incur more losses.
