An Afghan farmer sifts dust out of harvested wheat in Bamiyan, about 240km (149 miles) northwest of Kabul August 26, 2005. After years of severe drought, the harvest is expected to be the biggest in two decades in Afghanistan due to considerable rain and snowfall, according to the United Nations. Some 85 per cent of the population depends on agriculture. Picture taken August 26, 2005. REUTERS/Ahmad Masood Pictures of the Month August 2005 AM/CN
