40 learn agriculture techniques in Zabul

QALAT (PANinfo-icon): Forty farmers were taught skills to improve their agricultural yield during a 10-day training programme in southern Zabul province, an official said on Wednesday.

Arranged by a non-governmental organisation called Zarghon Afghanistaninfo-icon, the programme was attended by growers from Shahjoy and Shinkai districts and the provincial capital, Qalat.

Haji Abdul Hadi, the agricultureinfo-icon director, told Pajhwok Afghan News the participants were trained on planting saplings, grafting and pruning, preserving fruit and finding market for their products.

Zabul is an agriculture province, where such training programmes would help a lot in improving the sector, Hadi said.

Mohammad, who attended the training, said the event was useful, but short. He suggested such programmes should last at least one month.
