In world of traders and investors, walnut investment and farming presents a golden opportunity. This is not just because of local interests towards the products but also due to favorable environmental and ecological conditions. Such as soil, temperature and rain falls.

45,000 tons of production
Government has a projection of reaching the benchmark of around 45,000 tons of production by the maturity period of crops, i.e. ten years. The government along with the local cultivators is striving to achieve the goal fundamentally by improving quality and accelerating the growth of seedlings.
Walnuts breeding programs have been initiated that are commissioned to increase the productivity in forthcoming periods through very effective R&D.

Studies to increase the resistance from diseases and insects, along with seedling mechanization and efficient procedures in drying of harvested walnuts has also contributed in increasing the ROI in the walnut investment projects along with enabling a great progress in some ancillary industries such as harvesting automation tools and machineries.
