Zabul’s New Agriculture Institute

An agriculture institute was inaugurated in southern Zabul province for high school graduates.

Ministry of Higher Education ordered the construction of the agriculture institute earlier this year, said Najeebullah, an official at the Zabul education department. The institute would offer admission for 100 students and hire professional teachers.

Agriculture is a major source of revenue for 50% of households in Zabul province, including 52% of rural households. Around half (49%) of rural households own or manage agricultural land or garden plots in the province.

Such institution will help bring about agricultural experts in the province to work for the development of the agriculture sector of the province.

Enhancing licit agricultural productivity, creating incentives for non-farm investment, developing rural infrastructure, and supporting access to skills development and financial services will allow individuals, households and communities to participate licitly and productively in the economy. As agriculture represents the major source of income for half the households in the province, rural development will be a key element of progress in Zabul. The most important field crops grown in Zabul province include wheat, maize and potatoes. The most common crops grown in garden plots include fruit and nut trees and grapes.
