Kunduz is one of the provinces of Afghanistan, centered on the city of Kunduz, in northern Afghanistan, with an area of 8,040 km square, and a population of about 820,000. The Kunduz River valley dominates the Kunduz Province. The river flows from south to north into the Amu Darya or Oxus river which forms the border between Kunduz province and Tajikistan. A newly constructed bridge crosses the Amu Darya at Sher Khan Bandar. The river, its tributaries and derivative canals provide irrigation to the irrigated fields that dominate land usage in the province. There are also rain-fed fields and open rangeland. Pashtun is the major ethnic group in the province followed by Tajik,Uzbeks,Arabs, Hazara, and Turkmen. (via Freebase)
