Ministry: Wheat Production Increases by 13%

The Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation, and Livestock said that wheat production in the country will increase by 13% compared to last year in 1403 (solar year).

According to Misbahuddin Mustaeen, the spokesperson for the Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation, and Livestock, in 1403, nearly 2.14 million hectares of land had been sown with wheat, yielding approximately 4.9 million metric tons of wheat.

The spokesperson of the ministry said: "Although we did not achieve self-sufficiency this year and needed imports, this gives us hope that, like the past two years, we will continue our efforts and expand agricultural areas."

According to Misbahuddin Mustaeen, 6% more land has been cultivated with wheat this year compared to last year, but efforts to expand cultivation areas and produce improved seeds are ongoing to achieve self-sufficiency.

A number of farmers in the south of the country said that although their lands faced drought in recent years, this year's wheat production is satisfactory.

"We harvested good wheat this year, and it was a very good year," said Abdul Hakim, a farmer.

Meanwhile, some farmers said that floods in some provinces have destroyed wheat in agricultural areas.

"Rain and hail have destroyed ten acres of my land. Our request from the government is to build retaining walls," said Homayoun, a resident of Darzab district in Jawzjan.

At the same time, the Chamber of Agriculture and Livestock asked the officials to assist the farmers whose lands were destroyed by recent floods to prepare their lands for wheat cultivation again.

Mirwais Haji Zada, deputy of the Chamber of Agriculture and Irrigation, said: "On behalf of the country's farmers, our proposal is that the lands of the farmers that have been destroyed should be surveyed and assistance provided to the farmers."

According to statistics from the Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation, and Livestock, Afghanistan needs 6.9 million metric tons of wheat annually, which constitutes the largest area of agricultural cultivation in the country.
