Concave AGRI spearheads discussion related to climate change, modern farming techniques and practical solutions to agricultural concerns with farmers from Swabi, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa

Agriculture is the backbone of Pakistan’s prosperity and Concave AGRI is driven by its goal to empower this thriving sector of Pakistan. Farmers are a critical part of the agriculture ecosystem as their hard work promises a sustainable, equitable and progressing nation and economic development. For this reason, Concave AGRI’s highly experienced and motivated team, led by Dr Muhammad Ali Iqbal (President), alongside Dr Muhammad Azeem Khan (Chief Agriculture Advisor) Mr Qayash Bahadur (ex DG Department of Agriculture, Govt. of KP), Mr Younis Khan, (Representative for Farmers Management Committee), Mr Dinar Wali (Head of Partnerships, Sybrid) and Mr Mohsin H. Akhtar (Head of Operations – Strategic Initiatives, Sybrid), spearheaded an enlightening and informative session with 30 farmers from Swabi, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. 

The meeting commenced on an introductory note which discussed Concave AGRI’s goals and aspirations as a brand before Dr Azeem delved into an informational and interactive discussion regarding the prospects of farming in this region. With maize, wheat, cotton, canola, sugarcane, vegetables, and fruits being the main crops around the region, Dr Azeem, through his commendable expertise, discussed modern farming techniques and touched on precision agriculture. 

The session gave farmers a platform to express their concerns, especially regarding the availability and affordability of inputs which includes seeds, pesticides, DAP and other fertilizers. Retail of the produce at a lucrative price was also another pressing issue bought forward. Furthermore, farmers described the direct catastrophic impact of climate change on their produce as it has been resulting in low yield.  Concave AGRI’s team diligently took notice of these obstacles being faced by the farmers in attendance and Dr Azeem proposed that only getting subsidies from the government on inputs isn’t the solution to overcoming this challenge. He explained that the real solution is to expand one’s horizon and implement newer, more improved, harvesting and processing techniques which will uplift quality and production, consequently increasing sales and revenues. Additionally, Concave AGRI, through its sub-brand Kissan Dukaan, offered supplying climate resilient input at a reasonable expense given their formal agreements with seeds, pesticides, and fertilizer companies.

The presentation by Dr Azeem went on to discuss other elements of farming including varied quality and prices of inputs, the legitimacy of pesticides and fertilizers, and ways to increase the productivity of yield on a limited piece of land with the right approach.  Pea farming was chosen as an exemplary case study where he discussed the dynamics of seeds quality and types, methods of sowing using modern but moderate technologies and cultivation techniques, ensuring plant protection, and avoiding crop failure due to fungal diseases attacked on the crop root system, picking when its grown, possible multiple crop cycles and eventually commercialization of the crop. 

The discussion also pivoted towards the current season’s maize crop being challenged by fall army worm attack and ways in which to tackle the problem while extensively conversing on the solutions in which next season’s crop of peas and wheat can be grown using the right tools, techniques, and inputs. With climate change threatening the well-being and food security of our agriculture sector, Concave AGRI felt a dire responsibility to ensure that the farmers in attendance are aware of possible solutions and methods to protect their crops during these weather abnormalities. 

The meeting then approached a more economical aspect as farmers were informed of the upper hand they have in farming as compared to other developed countries where farmers are considered rich and are regulated by the state, Pakistani government has no such authority or regulations and hence gives our nation’s farmer advantage and independence. 

Dr Azeem was then joined by Dr Ali Iqbal to take the floor and present the many services Concave AGRI provides to ensure farmer accessibility and progression. This included an emphasis on Concave AGRI’s assurity in supplying quality products on the market at competitive prices, offering solar system services to the farmers to save on fuel and Concave AGRI’s agreement with U Microfinance Bank which enables farmers to obtain loans, financial assistance, and crop insurance plans. It was deliberated that those present farmers who own a piece of land, 4-5 acres each, may dedicate 1 acre each for peas harvesting with the inputs, advisory and services provided by Concave AGRI.

The highly productive and beneficial dialogue concluded with many farmers signing up for WhatsApp advisory provided by Concave AGRI’s sub-brand, Kissan Madadgar, and committed to working with our brand during the harvesting process for supplies and expert opinion. 

All present at the meeting were dedicated to this collaborative effort in increasing profitability and revenues.

The Impact of Natural Disasters on Livestock

Disaster refers to any event that causes immense damage and loss to society, infrastructure, and environment. A natural disaster is the negative impact that is followed by a natural calamity. 

Due to several geographical, meteorological, and environmental factors, Pakistan is prone to different types of natural disasters including earthquakes, droughts, floods, heat waves and extreme 

Climate change, increased urbanization and environmental decline are also key players that influence the abnormal and alarming rate of natural disasters that have been occurring in Pakistan. 

According to the Climate Risk Index 2021, Pakistan ranks eighth for countries most affected by extreme weather events between 2000 and 2019. Some catastrophic natural disasters Pakistan has had to overcome are as follows:

  1. The drought in the year 2000 affected about 1.2 million people in Balochistan, and over 100 died, mostly because of dehydration, according to the government. Millions of animals perished.
  2. The 2005 Kashmir earthquake killed about 73,000 people, with more than 3.3 million people homeless. 
  3. Floods in 2010 were regarded as some of the worst in the history of Pakistan as it killed 1,600 people and countless animals while leaving over 6 million people homeless.
  4. Drought-like conditions, which began in late 2018 and continued through 2019, affected five million people
  5. Record-breaking desert locust infestation in 27 years was declared a national emergency by the Government in January 2020.
  6. September 2020 was a devastating time as heavy monsoon rainfalls flooded major areas of the Sindh province, triggering a national emergency.

Currently, Pakistan is battling another natural disaster as 1/3 of Pakistan is under water due to heavy flooding. Major regions of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Balochistan, Sindh and Punjab are submerged in water and struggling to stay afloat. According to National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), as of 29 August 2022, more than 33 million people have been affected and more than 1 million houses damaged or destroyed. The death toll reached 1,136 people throughout the country. This number is increasing every single day alarmingly.

It is not just the humans that are suffering the dire consequences but animals, in particular, livestock animals are also negatively impacted due to these natural hazards. Millions of livestock animals are at risk of death and disease, seriously damaging the livestock sector of our agricultural unit. 

“Livestock in this country are the poor people’s mobile ATM,” said David Doolan, Senior FAO Officer, in charge of FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization) programmes in Pakistan. “In good times people build up their herds and in bad times they sell livestock to generate cash. Every animal we save is a productive asset that poor families can use to rebuild their lives when the floods finally pass.”

Here are some ways in which livestock is affected by the current floods sweeping the nation. 

Severe feeding shortage 

The biggest challenge faced by livestock farmers during these unprecedented times is being able to feed their livestock to keep them alive. Livestock food such as straw and fodder gets lost in the floods or their prices hike up due to shortage.  Reduced feed quantity and quality, changes in pest and disease prevalence, and direct production degradation owing to physiological stress all contribute to having a major impact on livestock systems 

Being left behind due to transport issues

There are several photographs of livestock farmers clutching onto their animals for dear life as they are not just holding onto livestock but rather the source of their income and the reason their upcoming generation will go to sleep with full bellies. However, during search and rescue operations, smaller livestock animals like goats, sheep and chickens can fit on the boat but larger animals like cows and buffaloes cannot and for buffalo and cattle, it is essential to enable the herds to rebuild quickly during the next breeding season.

Increase in life-threatening diseases 

Water-borne diseases become extremely common during flood seasons. Additionally, lack of clean water and being surrounded by contaminated water bodies is extremely detrimental to livestock health, leading to several physical and mental complications. Lack of food and water can lead to malnutrition and dehydration which becomes the gateway to disease in livestock. It is imperative and urgent that these livestock animals get medical treatment and attention. the scarcity of fresh drinking water was so severe that animals were forced to drink flood water during that time which can be life-threatening. 

The livestock sector of Pakistan is 56% of value addition in agriculture and nearly 11% of the gross domestic product (GDP), making it one of Pakistan’s major sectors and a crucial system that ensures food security, economic development and livelihood. It is our duty to ensure that an empirical plan to ensure the safety of livestock animals during these natural calamities is thought out and executed. 

Concave AGRI’s Inauguration of its first Kissan Dukan Outlet in Mathra, Peshawar District in Partnership

On 5th September 2022, Concave AGRI, with the help of its partner organization, Al-Moeez Associates Pvt. Ltd., launched the first outlet of its Kissan Dukan vertical in Mathra, Peshawar District. Kissan Dukan is setting up a network of physical shops with digital access to a marketplace. Kissan Dukan’s offerings include climate adaptive inputs, IPM (Integrated Pest Management) solutions, modern precision agriculture technologies, or necessary financial services such as loans and agri-insurance.

On top of setting up access to sustainable, climate adaptive, modern precision agriculture farm inputs, Kissan Dukan is also committed to the capacity building of farmers in their use.

The event also saw Mr. Muhammad Ali Iqbal, the President of Concave AGRI, gave a talk on the importance of uplifting the agriculture sector and making sure that farmers have access to the facilities, equipment and resources they require and are supported through data-driven solutions and technologies. He stated that “The agriculture sector makes up the backbone of the country’s economy and the small farmers, who make up the majority of this sector, are its key drivers. These farmers and hence this sector has been particularly ravaged by the consequences of climate change first through recurrent heatwaves that disrupted production, and now these floods that have destroyed farmland, killed livestock, and will continue to victimize this already vulnerable group. Concave AGRI through all its verticals, specially Kissan Dukan, is committed to making climate adaptive, modern precision agriculture accessible to farmers and to build their capacity in this regard. This will not only allow the sector to flourish but will go a far way in helping small farmers prosper by enabling them with the capacity to adjust to and combat climate change.” Haji Iftikhar, the head of Al-Moeez Associates, also touched upon the importance of the work being done and pledged the support of his organization in creating access to and building the capacity of farmers for these resources, technologies, and solutions.

About 2 million acres of crops and orchards have been destroyed and 793,900 livestock are dead. Climate change has a very big part to play in the recent disaster where according to WMO experts the flooding is “the footprint of climate change where it is becoming more extreme.”

The event saw an eager attendance from farmers and stakeholders all of whom were equally concerned with the state of the sector right now. The members of the audience were made aware of the efforts Concave AGRI was carrying out through its free of cost helpline service as part of its relief efforts in order to help farmers rehabilitate themselves and connect them with NGOs and government bodies offering support.

As part of Kissan Dukan’s contribution to the flood relief effort. A truck full of silage (livestock feed) was supplied to the event and distributed free of cost to farmers that had been displaced by the floods and had brought their livestock with them.

Concave AGRI, A Lakson Group Company, is on its way to becoming one of the largest one-stop channels for providing data-driven end-to-end solutions to farmers all over the country. Through its Kissan Dukan vertical, the company aims to resolve the supply issues that farmers face whether it is the supply of climate adaptive inputs, IPM (Integrated Pest Management) solutions, modern precision agriculture technologies, or necessary financial services such as loans and agri-insurance.
