Farmers have so far delivered more than 111 tonnes of the winter wheat crop to the Grain Marketing Board (GMB) as harvesting of the early planted crop progresses. 

Speaking during a wheat pre-harvesting conference in Harare this Wednesday, GMB operations director, Forward Takaindisa confirmed receiving the cereal and assured farmers that their depots have enough space to cater for the crop.

Zimbabwe is expecting a bumper harvest of 380 000 tonnes this year, against its 360 000 tonnes requirement leaving a surplus of 20 000 tonnes.
