Farmers need agricultural essentials as fruitful year hoped

Afghan farmers were not optimistic that they welcome a prolific year, as they were afraid of another drought after they spent the first two months of winter with no rain and snowfall. But, with the grace of Allah, the recent heavy snowfalls made them and the entire Afghan delighted, happy and hopeful about a fertile future. However, the recent snowfall caused life and property losses besides perishing at least two thousand livestock in some provinces of the country. Meantime, according to reports, an international conference is expected to be held to provide cooperation with the Afghan farmers and they should be provided with live alternatives, as they have long avoided the cultivation of banned narco-drugs. Reports said Pino Arlacchi, the former Executive Director of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime, announced the holding of an international conference aimed at securing financial support for alternative crop cultivation for Afghan farmers in Kabul. The Economic Deputy of the Prime Minister’s Office said that Arlacchi made these remarks during a meeting with the deputy Prime Minister for Economic Affairs, Mullah Abdul Ghani Beradar to provide aids in abide to prevent poppy cultivation in the poverty-affected nation. The Economic Deputy Prime Minister’s office quoted Pino Arlacchi as saying, “They [the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime in Afghanistan] plan to hold an international conference in Kabul in the near future and attract international financial support for the alternative cultivation of poppies to Afghan farmers through this conference.” Indeed, the international community has to cooperate with the Islamic Emirate in the sector of alternative opium cultivation to help thousands of Afghans resort to a legitimate alternative and never step up to opium cultivation. As, the former Executive Director of UNODC said, the international community is obligated to cooperate with the Islamic Emirate in providing alternative poppy cultivation for Afghan farmers, at a time when poppy cultivation, production and trafficking has nearly reached zero countrywide. Likewise, the country’s farmers should resort to the cultivation and production of a legitimate alternative to fully obey the order of the Islamic Emirate Supreme Leader as his Excellency ordered a complete ban on the vicious phenomenon after the takeover of the country more than two years ago.
