Orange orchards created in Afghanistan's Nangarhar province

Launched by the provincial agriculture department, work has started to create more orange orchards on over 270 acres of land in Afghanistan's eastern province Nangarhar. The project covers an area of 278 acres of land in the Abdulkhil area of the province.

According to Mawlawi Ghulam Rahman, head of the agriculture department the project costs 2.5 mln afghanis (€21,000) to plant over 18,000 orange saplings and to provide jobs for up to 200 people in the province.

Cultivation of citrus, including orange saplings in the vast areas, should bring high incomes for the farmers as well as the greenery of abundant sites in the province.
