Positive Efforts to Cultivate Saffron in Bamyan

Officials in the Bamyan agriculture, irrigation and livestock department say that a pilot project to introduce saffron cultivation in the province over the past two years has yielded extremely positive results. Mohammad Ayub Ahmadi, provincial agriculture extension director, said that results were good in Kohmard district and the provincial capital. He added that in the rudimentary project, they could get 80 grams of saffron from a half acre plot of land. Abdul Wahab Mohammadi, head of provincial agriculture, irrigation and livestock department, said the saffron introduced was from Herat. The Brussels-based International Taste and Quality Institute named Afghanistan's saffron the best in the world for the third year in a row in mid-2015
