MIRROR REPORTER

MASVINGO – Peta Agro Initiatives, a group of agricultural consultants whose common vision is to ensure improved food security in the country is offering a yearlong online agriculture course.

Peta consultant Tabeth Ruvarashe Munyonga told The Mirror that the course has modules covering areas such as animal feed formulation, pig production, mushroom farming, fish farming, maize production, small grains farming, horticulture, rabbit farming, goat farming, irrigation systems, greenhouse farming and herbs farming.

“The courses run from January to December for US$120. We have experts from various institutions such as SeedCo, Zimtrade, GMB, Farming Equipment Distributors, Ministry of Land, Agriculture, Fisheries and Rural Development, Agronomists and Syngenta Group.

“We noticed that most farmers are failing to succeed in the business because they lack knowledge and thus we came up with the training course. Our goal is to get farmers equipped with farming techniques and ideas. We will take you through the farming journey from planting, rearing, marketing and value addition,” she said.

The organisation began in 2020 with the thrust of equipping farmers with farming knowledge and new farming techniques.

Munyonga said farmers will be given certificates at the end of the course. She encouraged youth, small-scale and beginner farmers to enrol as this will help broaden their knowledge.
