Timely rains boost wheat production in Badghis

This year’s timely rains has increased wheat yield for Badghis farmers by 61%.

Provincial Agriculture Director Hafizullah Benish told Pajhwok Afghan News this year Badghis produced 78,517 tons of wheat, compared to last year’s 26,392 tons.

He linked the higher yield to the frequent rainfall the province witnessed and said this year’s production was sufficient to meet the demand of the province and also sell to other provinces.

Meanwhile, farmers urged the government to pay attention to the irrigation system of the province to help improve agricultural production.
