The Pakistani government will provide farmers and the agricultural industry with the most aid possible. All advice and recommendations ought to be directed towards raising and enhancing production while lowering the cost of imports. More than half of Pakistan’s population works in agriculture, making it a predominantly agricultural nation. However, due to inefficiency and bad planning, our nation’s agricultural industry has suffered. A drop in agricultural production results from farmers’ lack of contemporary farming training, which prevents them from using new farming techniques and forces them to cultivate crops using outdated, traditional ways.
In order to compensate agricultural losses caused by natural disasters, the Punjab government established a specific crop insurance policy in 2017. Since then, 22 lakh 87 thousand 559 farmers have registered under it, and 1390 of them have received coverage. Although millions of rupees have been allocated as compensation, hundreds of farmers have not received any money for crop loss due to technological issues.
