• The agribusiness industry is one of Zimbabwe’s most important economic growth drivers together with mining and tourism. • The sector has linkages to other industries such as food manufacturers. • All farm land belongs to the state and farmers are issued with 99-year lease agreements. • Major crops are tobacco, maize, cotton, and sugarcane. • Agriculture represents 8.5% of GDP and provides employment and income to 60% to 70% of the population. • Most agricultural land is farmed by smallholder farmers. • The industry provides opportunities to supply tractors, planters, harvesters, irrigation equipment and pesticides and for small stock-rearing and agro-processing such as manufacturing, drying, salting and preservation.
