Grain Harvest Increases Three-fold

Published on 15 June 2009

Zimbabwe could emerge from its perennial food shortage after increasing three-fold its grain production this season, a United Nations agency claims in a new report.
The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) reported in a fresh report Friday that this year’s grain production had nearly tripled over the previous harvest, with an estimated 1.5 million metric tons of grain having been produced, compared with about 564,000 metric tons harvested in 2007-2008.
