Zimbabwe possesses rich agricultural resources that allow for the production of sugar, fruit, maize (corn), tobacco, and cattle. In 1999 an estimated 8 percent of the country was cultivated. Forests cover 49 percent of the country, although the logging industry is small and wood cut in Zimbabwe is used mostly for fuel. Zimbabwe is also rich in minerals. Gold has been mined since ancient times, and the country has deposits of chrome, asbestos, and copper, which are found along the Great Dyke.
