Meteorological Department Services says farmers can start growing short season varieties following slight showers that continue being experienced in some parts of the country.
In a telephone interview with YAFM news, Met department official James Ngoma said Farmers have been advised to plant drought tolerant crops that are able to withstand the harsh climatic conditions predicted to be prevailing this year.
He said the country will be experiencing Elnino effects and urged members of the public to pay attention to weather forecast especially this rainy season.
As of Wednesday, some places such as Masvingo received above 15 to 20 ml, with the eastern highlands such as parts of Manicaland exceeding 50 ml.
