Discuss why food security situation in Zimbabwe is worse off than it was in the first decade from 1980 to 1990.
The most staple grains used included maize, which contributed over 70% of the calorie requirements. Maize production then started to decline from the year 2000 to date, whilst similar trends occurred in wheat production as well. This decline was probably due to the displacement of white commercial farmers who had irrigation infrastructure for agriculture production especially wheat. Increase production in the 1980s was due to improved technology and improved agricultural services to smallholder sector. The smallholder sector increased production and accounted for 60% of the marketed maize output to the GMB(Grain Marketing Board). At the peak of production in 1980, GMB held over 3years of food security reserves and over 8 years supply of small grains.

Agriculture is one of the largest sectors of the Indian economy (Encyclopedia of Nations, 2010), and provides one of the most lucrative sectors for foreign investment. Yet this sector remains underdeveloped.
