Tobacco Contract Farming (FCV).
Aqua Tobacco Zimbabwe contracts small to medium scale farmers in Zimbabwe’s four flue cured tobacco growing provinces. We offer both inputs and financial support to all our contracted growers. Qualification for loan is based on the growers farming experience and a traceable record of tobacco production. Our growers are managed in groups (clusters) under the guidance of an appointed chairperson and our Leaf Technician.
This arrangement strengthens information sharing and coordination during inputs disbursement and tobacco deliveries to the contract buying floor. The scheme into which a farmer is put is a function of his experience and tobacco production history. Our target is for farmers to get a yield of at least 2000 kgs of flue cured tobacco per hectare.
