Multimedia:Quton Seed goes regional

QUTON Seed Company (Private) Limited, a subsidiary of Seed Co Limited, has spread its wings to Tanzania where it has established a seed processing plant in the country’s Simiyu region.

Report by Phillip Chidavaenzi

The area’s regional commissioner, Paschal Mabiti, said establishing the plant had been an uphill task as it faced resistance from locals who felt threatened by the Zimbabwean presence.

Speaking at a Quton field day held in Kadoma last Friday, Mabiti said: “It was not an easy task because there were some people who thought we had come to take business away from other (local) entrepreneurs.”

Quton managing director
Edward Mhandu said the company’s seed breeders had just produced the new QM302 variety which was expected to give higher yields.

“We are pleased to announce that Quton seed breeders have come up with a new seed variety, QM302. It’s expected that farmers will benefit through higher yields and quality, and so will the ginners as well as the external market,” he said.

He added that there has been an increase in production as the company sold 8 700 tonnes of cotton seed on the market against
8 000 released in 2011.

    The Cotton Training Centre in Kadoma has established itself as one of the most important centres for research in improved varieties of high yielding cotton seed & farmer training in Zim & the region. Zim is the leader in production of cotton seed & lint in both the COMESA & SADC blocs. But we fare badly in the downstream manufacture of textiles & apparel compared with such countries as Botswana, Madagascar, Uganda, Tanzania, Lesotho, S.A., & Mauritius. Some of these countries don’t grow cotton at all, or are just peripheral producers of the crop.

    By exporting the lint, Zimbos have been exporting local jobs as MNCs pay peanuts to the Gokwe, Muzarabani & Sanyati growers. The same MNCs & their governments have decimated the textile & clothing industries in Bulawayo, Kadoma/Chegutu, Mutare, Harare & Chitungwiza through the illegal sanctions & preferential trade agreements. As things stand at the moment, the farmer cannot grow cotton any more. Poverty stalks the country-side. Factories have been shut left right & centre forcing workers out of jobs.

    Cotton is a natural resource which we must use to bring development to the rest of the countryside. As an industrial crop, it should be used to industrialize the country. Let us put on our thinking caps to deepen the cotton value chains & clusters linking them up with those of the region & the globe. Our present set up has been designed to leave us clutching straws while others race to the finishing line to win the contest. We can & should be calling the shots in the not too distant future so long as we can get China on our side. Government must take the initiative.
