Last year, more than 87,000 tons of grapes were harvested.
MAIL spokesman Lotfullah Rashid said Afghan farmers will earn a decent amount of money this year as a large percentage of these grapes will be exported to India.
“The activation of the air cargo route to India has resulted in a (probable) increase in income for farmers,” he said.
Meanwhile, a number of farmers and garden owners from Bagram district in Parwan province said their crops were good this year but they still need a good market for their produce.
They said they take their products to local markets but they cannot sell them at a good price.
“The increase of our harvests will not benefit us unless we have access to a good market for our products. We take our products to the center (Kabul) from far distances but we do not benefit from it,” said Zahir, a farmer in Baghlan.
Afghanistan's grapes are considered to be of a high quality around the world and are popular in India and in a number of Gulf States.
