Imam said that the policies of Prime Minister Imran Khan have started to reap fruit as the production of numerous crops have broken past records including potatoes, onion, sugar cane, etc.

He also said that the export of mangoes has also increased by 20 percent in the last year.

The import of wheat has been due to excessive hoarding and continuous population growth, he said.

He said that the only way Pakistan can emerge as a regional power is through following the progress path of countries such as China, Japan, and Germany.

He said that agricultural research is the primary focus of the PTI government, which has been neglected in the last three decades by various governments.

The minister said that the organic matter of land in Pakistan stands at a meager 0.2 percent, whereas, it is more than two percent in the USA and the EU due to their technological advancements and scientific methods of cultivation.—PR
