The Shamali Plain (or Shomali Plain) is north of Kabul. Shamali, meaning 'windy' or 'northern,' is a green plain which produced a lot of the food for central Afghanistan. From Kabul it extends north through Charikar, Parvan province to Jabal os Saraj. Food production was largely stopped during the wars, but it is now beginning to recover. The Plain remains largely green during the long hot summer.
