Potato Yield to boost this year in Bamyan

Bamyan farmers are expecting a 30,000 tons increase from last year in their potato production.

According to the data gathered from cooperatives, on average potato production would reach 170,000 tons, compared to last year’s 140,000. This healthy potato yield is mainly due to favorable conditions and the successful control of crop diseases.

Agriculture director Eng. Mohammad Tahir Ataie said that the farmers were provided 40 tractors at the beginning of the current solar year by the New Zealand Provincial Reconstruction, which also contributed to increasing their production.

The problems of pest still persist in certain districts of the province, and farmers’ yield are harmed.

“The agriculture department gave us insecticides but that was not enough for our fields,” said a farmer.

The farmers also called on the government to provide better access to the foreign markets for the farmers’ crops to help lift farmers’ benefits.
