Introducing Climate Smart Maize Hybrid Seed

Zimbabwe has not been spared from the effects of global warming. According to the meteorological services of Zimbabwe, since 1987 the country has experienced its six warmest years on record, with daily minimum and maximum temperatures having risen by approximately 2°C over the past century.

Due to global warming our climatic conditions are constantly changing and becoming more unpredictable. During the 2021-2022 season most areas received late rains, longer dry spells, flooding in some areas and drought in other areas, all due to climate change.

At Agriseeds we know that Climate change is real and we know the effects of climate change to the farming business and the farmer. We have continuously invested in research and breeding in order to produce climate smart products adaptable to climate change.

As we continue to prepare for the 2022-2023 season we are happy and proud to introduce not only one but two champion, tried and tested varieties adaptable to climate change, ZAP 73 and ZAP 611 Extra.

What makes good seed?

Good seed culminates in high yields. Disease is an issue with living organisms and the same is with seed. Seed that is not susceptible to diseases qualifies for good seed. When a farmers sows, poor or no germination of seed at all does not pronounce good seed. Excellent yield is a function of excellent germination. At above 95% germination rate, Agriseeds assures the nation good yields, other conditions remaining good. Read More

The Cradle of yield

Farmers, did you know this? Yield is a function of genetic potential, environmental potential as well as farmer management practice. Cultural practices also come into play, such issues like weeding, pest control, planting time and scouting are vital farmer yield pointers.
