Afghanistan’s agricultural production declining over the years

agricultureDespite the influx of billions of dollars to the agriculture sector of Afghanistan, the agriculture sector has been dwindling in the last three years.

According to the Central Statistics Organization, Afghanistan’s crops were 6mn tons in 2009, 5mn tons in 2010 and 4mn tons in 2011.

CSO Deputy Chief Hassibullah Mowahad said the cause of the decline is not clear; however, it could be linked to a statistical error.

Mr. Mowahad criticized the government for not using statistics in implementing development projects and called on the government to have representatives of the CSO in the Council of Minister or the Economic Commission of the government.

Meanwhile, Afghanistan’s electricity production was 847 million kilowatts in 2011, down from 937 million KW in 2009. However, electricity exports increased to 2 billion KW in 2011, up from 957 million KW in 2009.
