Pakistan has lacked modern agricultural technologies for a long time now. It is essential that Pakistan, like other agricultural countries, equips itself with the latest and most efficient agricultural practices and technologies.
The China-Pakistan Exonomic Corridor (CPEC) has opened a door for these agricultural technologies to flow into Pakistan. It was reported by the Associated Press of Pakistan (APP) that Zhao Lijan, the Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson, has said that with the beginning of the second phase of CPEC, agricultural technologies will now practically start coming to Pakistan.
Zhao Lijan further mentioned to APP that “China-Pakistan cooperation in cultivating rice, corn, soybean, sugarcane and other crops has yielded fruitful results and plays an important role in promoting development of our bilateral relations and deepening friendship between our people.”
Therefore, it can be established that with the entrance of updated technology implementations like the “Kisan (farmer) Portal,” there will be more agricultural technologies that will support this system and further improve the agri-tech scene of Pakistan.
Irrespective of this, Pakistan has been facing declining agricultural productivity in the last few years. Pakistan has to overcome many challenges like water shortage, lack of technical education, desertification, and several other environmental and external factors. Minister for National Food Security and Research, Syed Fakhar Imam has reportedly said at an event organization by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and Ministry of National Food Security and Research (MNFS&R) in Islamabad that “Pakistan can be successful like China by adopting their technology and discipline.”
Concave AGRI will be one platform that will provide an end-to-end solution for farmers in Pakistan. We aim to equip the farmers with the latest agricultural practices and the relevant technologies to improve their yield and reduce their losses. It is pertinent that every farmer in Pakistan is made aware of the desperate need to uplift the agricultural communities of Pakistan, and in turn achieve Pakistan’s national food security goals.
