Peppers مرچ

Problems and Opportunities

  • Priority problems for Afghanistan chili peppers include: inconsistent product reducing export potential, blossom end rot, phytophthora blight, and over irrigation.
  • Priority opportunities include: variety selection, whole or cut dried pepper for international markets, improved irrigation practices (both furrow and basin irrigation currently used for peppers), field and crop rotation for disease prevention.
  • These draft priority problems are based on feedback from Alan Walters (Southern Illinois University).
