Direct contract growing was established in 2003 to enhance and ensure continued and reliable production of the Zimbabwean tobacco crop. This increase in national production is attributable to contract growing. All contracted growers receive various levels of support ranging from finance, fuel, coal, chemicals and extensive agronomy assistance. Without this support, production would not generate the quality and styles that our customer base requires. Farmers grow under a signed contract with Huruyadzo Farming. Huruyadzo Farming adheres to and complies with the rules and regulations as set by the Tobacco Industry Marketing Board (TIMB).
