He plans to use the project to donate more than one million artificial insemination doses from hybrid bulls to local communal farmers over the next 12 months, reports The Zimbabwe Herald .

Mr Caywood announced the programme in Munyamani resettlement area in Maranda during a South Eastern Growers Association meeting witnessed by the Zanu-PF National Chairman Cde Simon Khaya Moyo on Saturday.
