Description Afghanistan is poor and rural - More than 70% of Afghans are dependent on farming and, on average, they earn just $1.50 per day. In addition, few can read - with only 18% of woman and 50% of men being literate. Although wheat is the primary staple, Afghan agriculture is remarkably diverse—grapes, almonds, pomegranate, citrus, apples, rice and many other crops, as well as, sheep, goats and cattle. UC ANR is leading a consortium of land-grant universities to help farmers by rebuilding Afghanistan’s extension system.
