Helmand farmers switching to wheat cultivation

wheat cultivation helmandFarmers in Helmand, world’s largest opium-producing region, had cultivated wheat on about 100,000 hectares of land this year.

In an exclusive interview with Pajhwok Afghan pictures of generic levitra News (PAN), Agriculture Director Rohullah Rawan said distribution of seeds to farmers and public awareness against poppy cultivation by tribal leaders, religious scholars and counter-narcotics officials had led to the boost in wheat cultivation in the province.

“Increased wheat cultivation could make Helmand Afghanistan’s food basket,” Rawan hoped.

He said better access to market for agricultural products would improve farmers’ economy and encourage them to switch to legal cash crops.

He added cold storage facilities would be established during the current year.
