The northern Samangan province has witnessed a considerable increase in its pistachio production this year.

According to sources, pistachio yield in the province has reached 212 tons this year, indicating a 26% increase from last year.

Farmers have earned 265mn Afghanis from the business compared to 210mn Afghanis last year.

Samangan pistachio is exported to India, Pakistan and European countries.
