- In the recent years Pakistan has achieved a record over all growth rate of 4% in agricultural products fixed by the “World Food Conference”. Pakistan is now not only self sufficient in wheat and sugar but is also the third largest exporter of rice in the world. It produces some of the finest varieties of rice which are very popular all over the world. Pakistan’s exportable surplus of rice is over 1.2 million tonnes per annum. Rice Export Corporation plays a key role in marketing Pakistan’s rice abroad. All this growth rate in agricultural produce has been possible mainly due to the efforts of farmers and increased use of chemical fertilizers. Tremendous contribution in this field has been made by National Fertilizer Corporation (NFC) which is the biggest produce of fertilizers in Pakistan, marketing over 1.5 million tonnes of five types of fertilizers annually. To assure timely delivery of fertilizers NFC has created a vast network of over 1700 dealers and has 10 regional offices to cater to the needs of the farmers.
- The National Fertilizer Corporation has also made a significant contribution in educating the farmers in how to use modern techniques to boost food production.
