Pakistan is an agricultural country. Till this day agriculture is practiced in traditional ways. Pakistan has vast and fertile land and has largest irrigation system in the world. On the other side Pakistan has huge population to feed.
Pakistan’s rich and fertile land has not been used fully and efficiently till now. There is enough potential for improvement in many areas of agriculture. Presently per acre yield is quite low. The crops are much less resistant to diseases. Much of the cultivatable area is dependent on rain for irrigation.
An entrepreneur can benefit from these states of affairs. By enhancing the productivity by using better quality seed, using better techniques, employing more capital, using more fertilizer, and seeding the varieties that are more resistant to diseases.
Livestock farming also offers huge opportunities for businessmen. Pakistan has one of the lowest productivity of milk per animal. In Pakistan 8 animal produces milk as much as 1 animal in United States. Halal food is promising area. Investment in this business can be rewarding in near future.
