Nyimo Buying

Posted Leave a comment

The ABC is currently procuring Nyimo from the farmers in the Charama and Manyoni area of Gokwe South. This undervalued crop is extremely nutritious and nit enough research has gone into it. It constitutes a complete diet and further value addition to this crop needs to be evaluated. Usually, a subsistence crop grown by women, the ABC is evaluating the possibility of promoting this bean as a cash crop for the farmers. Unfortunately, this did not pan out as expected and harvested amounts are far below expectations.
