Herat Hosts One-Day Grape Expo


A one day grape expo took place in Herat city on Thursday where grape-farmers gathered to display a wide variety of their produce.

On display were an estimated 180 different types of grapes grown in the eastern province.

Many of the farmers however used the event to raise problems in the sector, such as the lack of proper marketing systems and the nonexistence of proper storage facilities which could be used to extend the shelf life of their produce.

Farmers also criticized government for not taking enough action to help them.
