KAPISA PROVINCE, Afghanistan – U.S. Army Lt. Col. Garland H. Goodrich, Kapisa team leader for the Kentucky Agribusiness Development Team and a Wakefield, Va., resident; Mohammad Husain, Kapisa Director of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock; and Mohammad Hakimzadah, interim governor of Kapisa, cut a ribbon to celebrate the completion of the latest project at the DAIL compound here Oct 4. Hakimzadah thanked the Kentucky ADT for all their assistance. The project consists of a water reservoir that is used to pump water into a holding tank that delivers water to a drip irrigation system for two greenhouses to raise fruits and vegetables. After the crops are harvested, they are stored in one of two new cold storage units until they are ready to be distributed to local markets.
