HARARE – Malawi’s Agriculture Minister Robin Clarke Lowe hailed Zimbabwe’s agriculture sector following his visit to SeedCo’s Rattary Arnold Research in Goromonzi.
Speaking after the tour, Lowe said his country had a lot to learn from Zimbabwe’s agricultural transformation, adding that they will soon send a delegation.
“After going through the research station, we appreciate and have learnt a lot. Soon we will send a delegation to visit the Ministry of Agriculture and Seed Co. There is a lot to learn from transformative agriculture in Zimbabwe,” Lowe said.
“My Government is going towards transformative agriculture and for that to happen we need to be oriented and Zimbabwe is the best country to get that orientation. I wish we had stakeholders or partners like Seed Co. If we have similar investment in research it would help the country and the region. I like the way you collaborate with your Government,” he added.
Lowe was accompanied by his Zimbabwean counterpart Anxious Masuka.
Zimbabwe expects a bumper harvest this year after the country received above-average rains during the cropping season.
