Pakistan is blessed with a variety of seasons, landforms and 20.43 million hectares of cultivated land. Owing to favorable soil and climatic conditions we are able to produce a variety of crops, fruits and vegetables.

Agricultural production is not only fulfilling the food, feed and clothing demands of the population but also a primary supplier of raw materials to downstream industries. In this way the agriculture is continuously playing a central role in Pakistan’s economy. It is the second largest sector, accounting for over 21 percent of GDP and remains by far the largest employer; absorbing about 45% of the country’s total labor force. Nearly 62% of the total population resides in rural areas and is directly or indirectly linked to agriculture for their livelihood.

The over and ever increasing population of Pakistan is continuously exerting a demand pressure over agriculture for their basic necessities. As a response it becomes the need of time to enhance agricultural production horizontally as well as vertically. Owing to soil, water and climatic problems, a further increase in cultivated area is almost impossible and the only option left behind is to increase yield per unit area. Such a production revolution is not possible without linking the agriculture with advanced knowledge of science and technology.
