CASE STUDIES

Promotion of Olive Cultivation

PARC's Land & Water Resources Research Accomplishments in Balochistan.


Balochistan province is by far the largest in size and the smallest in population. The climate of upland Balochistan is continental semi- arid Mediterranean. Cereal crops in particular wheat are grown by most dryland farmers as dual purpose crop, with the grain is used for human consumption and the straw as animal feed. Yield expectations are low. In this high risk environment agricultural inputs are minimal.

Agricultural Innovation Program

Introduction and Production of Canola Oil in Pakistan.


Since the early 1980s, PARC promoted research on quality improvement of rapeseed oil (Canola) in Pakistan. Canola crop introduction by PARC is a great service to the farming commodities in Potohar region. It is not only helping increase incomes and improve the living standard, but it is also helping keep farming commodity healthy.
