Late Rains Saved Zimbabwe's Crops in 2015-2016

Reports of yet another drought during the 2015-16 season in the SADC region made sad news for Zimbabwe. Memories of past food shortages haunt many Zimbabweans. The El Nino-induced erratic rainfall patterns contributed to the anxiety. Drought is equal to food shortages.

Many farmers could have given up on producing on their land due to the forecast erratic rainfalls. However, not all seems to be lost and the late rains that pounded Zimbabwe was a welcome development for some. The late rains helped farmers salvage their yields ahead of the dry season.
