MAIL's radio studio is one of the main components of e-agriculture complex and serves as an extension tool to reach to the farming community. The studio develops, records and edits the radio and TV spots and broadcasts them via National Radio and Television of Afghanistan. The provided apparatus by UNODC will further enrich and enable agriculture extension services to reach farther and insecure communities along with counter narcotic messaging.
