ICARDA and the Agricultural Research Institute of Afghanistan (ARIA) have released three new Drought-Resistant Wheat Varieties in Afghanistan to help overcome the increasing menace of recurring droughts in the country and help get the agricultural sector back on its feet. The new varieties, named Mirdad-19, Sharq19, and Jawahir-19, were developed and field-tested through ICARDA’s and ARIA’s intensive research program under the CLAP project of the Ministry of Agriculture in Afghanistan funded by IFAD, and are producing optimum yields.
