HARARE – Government will start drying maize grain to prevent spoilage
during storage, Agriculture minister Joseph Made has told Senate.
This comes after the Grain Marketing Board (GMB) has tightened its grain
moisture guidelines for maize bought, discounting corn with grain moisture
above 12.5 percent.
“It is an issue that we are attending to and hopeful that in the next
season, the dryers will be there to assist in ensuring that the maize that
is delivered has the correct moisture content,” Made said.
