Farah witnesses a remarkable increase in jujube yield this year

jujubeFarah orchard owners are experiencing a tremendous hike in jujube production.

With 950 hectares of land producing 1,187 tons of jujubes, the production has jumped three-fold this year in the province.

The fruit is widely produced in Andar Dara, Pusht Koh, Qala kah, Pushrod and Gulistan districts.

Agriculture officials have attributed the increase to disease prevention and trainings the farmers had received on nourishing the fruit.

“Afghanistan imports jujube to Pakistan and India, where the fruit is used in making medicines,” Pajhwok Afghan News quotes agriculture official Mohammad Jafar Kazimi.

This year, a kilo of jujube costs between 150 and 300 AFN (nearly USD 3-USD 6), compared to last year’s 100 AFN (nearly USD 2).
