Afghanistan is one of 24 countries that is establishing plant clinics with help from Plantwise.
In February, new plant doctors were trained in pest and disease identification, and took part in a pilot plant clinic in Bamyan town to test their training.
The plant doctors will be running clinics in various areas of Afghanistan, which farmers will be able to bring their crop samples to for treatment advice and information.
