Three valleys., almost one half of this land is now irrigated and used for cultivating Cotton and Rice. Non irrigated land is used for growing wheat Barley and fruit in 1937, according official figures tajik peasants sold the state 176,000 tons of raw Cotton. They Are required by Law sell All their Cotton the state and prior 1934 the state paid Little for the Cotton that peasants in Tajikistan and neighbouring Cotton of growing republics threatened revolt their discontent was intensified by the fact that much land had been converted .
