Two fruit processing factories worth USD 450,000 have been established in Gardiz city of Sayed Karam district in eastern Paktia province.

Funded by the Asian Development Bank (ADB), the factories were established by the Afghan Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock (MAIL).

Most farmers have turned their attention towards rising orchards of different fruits such as apples, grapes, walnuts and other dry fruits in recent past.
