Bongani Ndlovu, left, digs holes while his brothers Themba Moyo, middle, and Silas Ndlovu, right, plant maize by dropping the seeds and using their feet to cover the hole with soil. The brothers’ field, pictured in January, is located in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe’s second-largest city. People plant maize during the rainy season, which generally takes place between November and April, using naturally treated organic seed. Genetically-modified seeds aren’t allowed in Zimbabwe.
