Samangan sees an increase in grapes production

Grapes yield in the Feroz Nakhchar district of northern Samangan province has boosted to 6,000 tons this year compared to last year’s 5,000 tons, generating a revenue of 204 million AFN to the district.

The suitable climatic and soil conditions accompanied by the increased grapes cultivated areas are the main reasons behind the boost in the yield.

According to the Deputy Director of Agriculture Noor Mohammad, 800 hectares of land had been cultivated with grapes in the district.

Owing to its relative isolation, Samangan province is underdeveloped with no energy infrastructure and has a high rate of illiteracy. The economy revolves around agriculture, with farmers cultivating grains, fruits, and nuts on the region’s fertile river plains.
