Farmers in Zimbabwe say they face another difficult agricultural season, as the dry spell that has hit the country continues.
Weeks into the agricultural season, the rains are nowhere near normal and the crops are showing it. Zimbabwe Farmers Union Director Paul Zakariya tells VOA even crops that normally thrive under dry conditions are feeling the heat.
"We are looking at maize [corn], we are looking at cotton and, in some instances, it's also the tobacco and the other small grains which naturally will be resisting or would be tolerant but they are already succumbing," he said.
