Kunduz farmers get soybean seeds
In addition to good income for growers, the distribution of soybean seeds -- provided by an NGO called Nutrition & Education International (NEI), -- would resolve the malnutrition problems.
Nearly 80 interested farmers were being trained on crop cultivation practices, the director said, hoping growers would benefit from the NEI support.
A farmer from Khanabad, Imaduddin, said he had received 10 kilograms of soybean seeds from the NGO and wanted to grow the crop on 500 square metres of land. If the crop gives an encouraging yield, he would grow soybean on all his land.
