  • Tanzania sees declining tobacco production: official

  • Tobacco production in Tanzania has been on the decline due to various challenges, including destructive pests, an official said on Sunday. Stanley Mnozya, the Deputy Managing Director of the Tanzania Tobacco Board, said production of the cash crop had been on the decline since the 2013/2014 farming season. "There has been a spate of pests that destroy tens of hectares of tobacco farms annually which subsequently raise production costs of the cash crop," said Mnozya.
