Afghan farmers receive new agriculture machineries

Afghan Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock (MAIL) introduced a new cultivation machinery to farmers in Bamyan that cultivate more potatoes in shortest possible time.

This comes as potato yield is considerably declining in the province due to influx of Pakistani and Iranian imports.

Bamyan’s potatoes are known in the region for their unique taste, but they fail to compete with the cheaper potatoes that flood Afghan market from Iran and Pakistan. As a result, farmers in Bamyan are discouraged to grow potatoes on their lands.

Costing USD 1000, the new machine will replace the manual works of the farmers and encourage farmers to grow more potatoes.

Separately, the Agency for Technical Cooperation and Development (ACTED) distributed three machines for refining wheat seeds to agriculture cooperatives in Faryab province.

The new see refinery machines refine 500kg of wheat in an hour.
