Vice President Constantino Chiwenga says the country needs to double its agricultural output in order for the country to regain its status as the bread basket of Africa.

Addressing guests at a SeedCo-hosted field day held at President Emmerson Mnangagwa's Pricable Farm in Kwekwe, Chiwenga said agriculture currently contributes between 15 and 18 percent to the country's gross domestic product (GDP).

Zimbabwe's agricultural productivity took a serious knock in the wake of the fast track phase of the land reform in 2000 which was marred by violence and lawlessness. However, government has pledged to end the farm invasions as a way of stimulating production.
