During the 2019/20 season, LFSP piloted Pfumvudza plots to promote low input agricultural systems in response to the consecutive poor rainfall seasons and inflationary macro-economic environment. This drive saw 53,004 farmers from the three LFSP clusters in Manicaland, Midlands and Mashonaland Central undergo training on the Pfumvudza plots concept, with 9,281 going on to apply the concept under the maize crop at their family farms. The farmers applied the different components of the Pfumvudza package to varying degrees during the season. An assessment of the Pfumvudza performance during the 2019/20 season in the three LFSP clusters was assessed and its contribution towards household food security determined.
