GMB doubles maize producer price
The government has reviewed the maize producer price to ZWL$4 000, up from ZWL$2 100 in an effort to encourage farmers to deliver their grain to the Grain Marketing Board (GMB).
In a statement dated 4 October 2019, GMB encouraged farmers who still have grain to take advantage of the new price and urgently deliver their crop to their nearest depot.
Zimbabwe Farmers Union executive director Mr Paul Zakariya said the review of the producer price is a welcome move as it will encourage farmers to deliver maize to the GMB, but lamented the increase in the prices of most farming inputs.
The producer price for traditional grains like sorghum, millet, and rapoko has also been reviewed upwards.
The government recently made GMB the sole grain buyer as part of efforts to curbside marketing.
