Macadamia farmers in Manicaland have been advised to ensure adequate watering of the crop which is now at flowering stage to ensure quality produce. Zimbabwe Macadamia Association Secretary General Mr. Arthur Maisiri said inadequate water during the fruit setting stage leads to fruit drop thereby leading to losses. He further warned farmers not to apply foliar fertilizers during the flowering and fruit setting stage.
