Value Chain Approach for AgriBusiness for Pakistan

Posted by Unknown On Wednesday, July 17, 2013


Value chain approach in agri-business for Pakistan
Agriculture is perhaps the most important and most neglected sector in Pakistan. Agriculture which deploys 69% of the population directly or indirectly is facing the some of the most serious problems like high prices of inputs, lack of electricity to run tube-wells, extra cost for diesel to run tractors, continuously decreasing agricultural land compared to our neighbour country, India. But at the same time the farmer has to sale the produce at a very low rate and mostly raw material is sold out. Hence, agribusiness in Pakistan has greater scope since it is in its developing phase and new & innovative minds are needed in Pakistan.
