Production of wheat expected to increase by 20% in Kunduz province

afghanistan wheatFarmers in Kunduz are expecting their wheat yield to enhance by 20% owed to the province’s suitable weather conditions and usage of improved seeds.

Director of the Agriculture and Livestock Department Abdul Basir Faqiri said wheat was grown in 160,000 hectares of land, resulting in a yield of 418,000 tons of wheat. This year, wheat is grown in 168,000 hectares of land and the production is expected to be 20% more than last year’s.

Mr. Faqiri linked the predicted high yield to the suitable weather conditions, adequate rainfall, abundance of irrigation water and distribution of improved seeds and fertilizers to the farmers.

Meanwhile, the farmers have expressed concerns about the low prices of wheat sold in the market.

The current selling price of 7 kilos of wheat, AFN 112, does not meet the farmers’ expenses.

According to Mr. Faqiri, the World Food Program (WFP) bought 1000 tons of wheat from Kunduz farmers at a reasonable price in an attempt to help the farmers make some profit.

The farmers called for aid organizations to take a similar step.
