Zimbabwe’s Tobacco output expected to increase

  • March 28, 2017

Output on Tobacco is expected to increase this year. The estimated increase is from 202 million kilograms last year to 205 million kilogram this year. This is a result of more number of farmers growing this crop lately.

The estimated increase in tobacco output is being considered as a favorable change for the economy as tobacco sales could ease the shortage of cash in the country. According to the sources, the increased output is a result of high domestic as well as international demand for the commodity.

 Tobacco is the leading export commodity, followed by platinum and gold.
