Greenhouse products in cold Bamyan as an income source

Farmers in the mountainous Bamyan province say they receive good incomes by selling vegetables grown in the greenhouses.

“I grow cauliflowers, cabbages, spinaches and cucumbers in my greenhouse and I receive good incomes by selling them,” said Saberah from center of Bamyan city, adding that she is engaged in her greenhouse for four years.

She said that the vegetables grown in the province is fresher, cheaper and better than the imported products. Another farmer, Mohammad Ali said those families who cannot afford to buy vegetables in the winter, have vegetables for consumption as well as for selling. The greenhouses are made by Aga Khan Foundation.
