Small grains are useful economic and food crop especially for communities living in agro-ecological zones III, IV and V in Zimbabwe because they are tolerant to semi-drought conditions. Their significance in these areas is more critical now given the challenges presented by climate change. The LFSP’s Agricultural Productivity and Nutrition (APN) Component has produced a quick production guide for 3 drought tolerant small grain crops, namely sorghum, pearl millet and finger millet.
The production guide is meant to provide field based agricultural extension personnel and farmers with quick reference material to guide them in the promotion of small grain production.
