Farmers in the arid areas of Mutare have been urged to apply lime in their fields to address the issue of high acid levels in soils. The District’s Agritex Officer Bertha Mashayamombe said according to the pH analysis that was done it was proved that soils in the arid region of Mutare district are very acidic which affects crop production. Meanwhile the Presidential Climate-Proofed Agriculture Programme or Pfumvudza/Intwasa inputs that are set to be distributed in the coming weeks consists of lime that is aimed at addressing soil acidity.
