Beyond Belief Tomatoes

Mcebisi Ncube
Mcebisi works with the Beyond Belief farmers who are involved in crop farming. This is what he had to say about the farmers.....

There are 108 Beyond Belief tomato farmers in the communities of Mablauwuni, Natisa, Lushumbe, Gqalaza, Mapane and Silozwe. They have all grown tomatoes which are being collected at the moment and will be going to a market in Bulawayo. The main challenge faced by the farmers was red spider mite and boll worm.
