Biography: 

Research interest
Dr Moyo is an Agricultural Economist, with expertise in statistical packages for social scientists. My career interests include collection, analysis and dissemination of empirical evidence on smallholder farmer development, rural livelihoods, farmer market participation aimed at improving the quality of life of smallholder resource-poor farm families. I have research interests in Livelihoods, Poverty alleviation, Smallholder farmer development, Smallholder farmer market participation, Land issues and Comparative research particularly in the SADC and sub-Saharan Africa. Previously, I participated in a number of agriculture and rural development projects in a few SADC countries. In my career life, I have worked both individually and as part of research teams.
