Scientists call for sane policy to ensure food security


STAFF REPORT KHI: Agriculture scientists have highlighted the importance of removing policy gaps in order to bring about self-sufficiency in food production and ensure food security through transferring latest technologies and research results to farmers.


“We have been blessed with adequate climate and have up-to-date technology, however, where we lack is the policy side which needed to be given heed for the promotion of agriculture sector,” speakers said while addressing a recently held Travelling Wheat Seminar 2015 in Karachi.


Speaking on the occasion, PARC Chairman Dr. Iftikhar Ahmad said that the council has recently introduced four new rust-resisting wheat crop varieties including a bio-fortified one that would benefit not only to the farmers but to the whole population in consuming healthy food.
