Purdue Improved Crops Storage (PICS bags)
The Purdue Improved Crop Storage (PICS) project aims to increase the income of farming families in northern Afghanistan through the use of plastic grain-storage bags. Our objective is also to improve food safety, retain crop’s nutritional value and reduce post-harvest loss.
Weed control training is done under the project grant of RADP-N in four provinces; Baghlan, Jawzjan, Samangan, and Balkh. The goal of RADP-N training is to increase wheat productivity by 25% for 85,000 farmers.
