Fruit’s Cold Storage (SAARC)
Management of Agricultural Products:
Construction of cold storage for Pomegranates and Apples
To better manage Agricultural products, the Ministry of Agriculture has planned to build, 475 Cold Storages to maintain a large portion of Apple and Pomegranate Orchard products. These Apple and Pomegranate Cold Storages are being built at a cost of more than 1.2 Billion Afghanis. Each of these Cold Storages built under the (SAARC) model, which will have a capacity of 25 Metric Tons, and will be built in the provinces that produce the most Apples and Pomegranates. By building these Cold Storages, the rot and loss of thousands Metric Tons of Apples and Pomegranates will be prevented.
