Bamyan بامیان

Major Agricultural Activities

Bamyan is famous for producing khroot (a very hard cheese), namad (wool carpet) and potatoes.

Potential Development Themes

Animal husbandry, agricultural productivity, pasture improvement, value adding (product processing), post-harvest technology, and irrigation system improvement (highlands and rivers) are some of potential areas for development. If properly managed, Bamyan's water resources would provide for Bamyan as well as several surrounding provinces (based on feedback from Zia Mirzada, MAIL).
