Project Goal: 

Project Goal 1-To determine the economic and livelihood impact of a range of vegetable and crop legume projects, enhanced by drip irrigation, on poppy farmers in Nangarhar Province, 2- Scale up those projects that demonstrate the most significant rate of return, in order to develop sustainable, legal alternatives to poppy cultivation as a livelihood strategy.

Project Purpose: 

Project Purpose To ascertain the most viable alternative legal economic activities through evidence-based applied research. To utilize a holistic and participatory research methodology and project design that looks at the rural economy, and its effects on farmer’s incomes, To focus on vegetable and legume crop production, enhanced by low cost drip irrigation systems, Scaling-up successful projects that demonstrate a significant rate of return Establishment of a model research plot at Nangarhar University to create baseline data To build the capacity of the Faculty of Agriculture, NU

EXPECTED OUTPUT: 

EXPECTED OUTPUT 24 Operational Research Plot of following Crops: Moongbean, Cowpea, Onion, Tomato, Chili, Garlic and Carrot Test the low cost drip irrigation Training of 38 lead farmers as extension agents Production and dissemination of information NU develop the capacity to design, manage and report on livelihood development projects.

Garlic Variety Trial: 

Garlic Variety Trial Four garlic varieties are under trial: 1-Watani (local) 2- China Kabuli 3- China Pakistani 4- Red Trials are laid with farmers’ level fertilizer application at 150 Kg. DAP and 200 Kg. urea per hectare are planted in three replications for variety performance comparison. Two varieties are performing better than the other two.

Onion Variety Trial: 

Onion Variety Trial Total seven onion varieties are under Trial. Six collected from local and Pakistani sources . Red Local Mazina, Supreme Stone commercial, Supper Swat 1 commercial, Nasik Red commercial, Red Brown F-1 commercial, N-53 commercial Two onion varieties were procured from AVRDC (World Vegetable Center), were planted in the nursery for a study to compare the adaptation, performance and production of these varieties in Eastern Afghanistan. One of the two varieties failed to germinate. One varieties has produced seedlings and transplanted in three replications in RCBD. Most of the seedlings have established and their performance looks promising.

Tomato Variety Trial: 

Tomato Variety Trial 17 tomato varieties were collected from markets in Jalalabad and Peshawar of Pakistan and planted in nursery to produce transplants for a study to compare the adaptation, performance and production of these varieties in the Eastern Afghanistan situation. 12 Varieties successfully produced transplants and these are under experiment in a Randomized Complete Block Design with three replications.
