Description

The contiguous Indus basin irrigation system irrigates an area of about 16 million ha. In spite of a massive irrigation network, in rural areas still almost 80% of the people are poor. Farmers are not getting enough profit. One of the reasons is that farmers keep on doing oldfashioned agricultural activities and that do not bring good profit to the area.

Thanks to the World bank greenhouse project in Sindhi farmers started to install greenhouses in their fields. With a greenhouse dissemination project some farmers started to use new efficient irrigation tools and different planting techniques for the first time. As a result farmers have good profit of their field.

If farmers will stop doing old fashioned farming activities, Pakistani economy can improve significantly.
