THE unsustainable management practices in Punjab have damaged soil fertility and health, leading to promotion of chemical fertilisers which too is inefficient to the desirable level, according to the Soil Fertility Atlas recently published by the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) of the United Nations. 

These scenarios warrant adoption of best management practices to enhance fertiliser use efficiency and improve soil fertility for sustaining agricultural productivity, according to the atlas, published in association with the US Department of Agriculture and United States Agency for International Development (USAID)..

During the first annual meeting of the Olive Development Group (ODG), USAID Punjab Enabling Environment Project (PEEP) and Allied Foods signed a grant to establish a mobile olive extraction unit.

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Government of Punjab established the ODG in May 2016 as part of their combined effort to transform the Potohar Valley in Punjab Province into Pakistan’s first region dedicated to the cultivation of olives.

The ODG is chaired by Agriculture Secretary Muhammad Mahmood and includes representatives from the olive value chain, academia, and industry associations. Secretary Mahmood, USAID/Pakistan Mission Director Jerry Bisson, and a diverse group of sector stakeholders participated in the meeting.
Agriculture Sector has been in crisis for the last 3 decades regardless that it is the most dominant factor of the Pakistani economy, employing around 40 percent of the labor units of the country. The global inflation of food prices summed up with weak demand for export, and swift fluxes in Cotton and Sugar production over the years has led to a stagnant state.
