Get Optimal Yields Out of the Lesser Agriculture Land Urged by Chines Expert

The Chinese model of nutrient management system can enable
Pakistan to get optimal yields out of the lesser agriculture land.
It was stated by Qingdao Agricultural University Vice
President Dr Yuan Yongbing in a meeting with Pak-China Joint Chamber of
Commerce and Industry (PCJCCI) President Wang Zihai and Vice President Moazzam
Ghurki at Chamber premises.
The delegation, headed by Dr Yuan Yongbing, was comprised of
Agricultural University Vice President Qingdao, Professor Shan Hu, Professor
Zhu Jun and Dr Gao Ting.
The purpose of the delegates was to introduce the Chinese
nutrient management system in the agriculture sector of Pakistan. They were of
the view that Pakistan being an agricultural country with vast arable lands is
still unable to utilise its maximum potential, particularly due to lack of
modern infrastructure, conventional cultivation procedures and low-quality
chemicals and fertilisers that badly affects the yield per hectare.
On the occasion, Dr Yongbing said that China has only 10
percent arable land and has the challenge to feed 20 percent of the world’s
population. He said, “With the help of nutrient management system devised by
our agriculture research experts, we are able to get higher yields from minimum
land.” He informed about the utilisation of non-hazardous, eco-friendly and
pesticide-free microbial compound fertilisers that are effectively used in
China to enhance cultivation yield.
Similar microbial fertilisers should be introduced in
Pakistan to get maximum yield from the fields, he suggested. Yongbing said that
with the increase in population and the development of industrialisation and
rapid urbanisation, China is expected to face huge demand-supply gap due to
restricted agriculture resources. According to Yongbing, Developing countries
with agro-based economies could benefit from this situation by creating their
stamp in agro-products.
He said that China is ready to collaborate with Pakistan for
providing all modern agriculture facilities including equipment, experts, and

Wang Zihai highly acknowledged the proposals shared by
Yongbing and promised to extend full cooperation from the platform of PCJCCI.
The PCJCCI chief briefed the delegation about the prospects available for
investors in this potent sector. A presentation was delivered by the PCJCCI
vice president, in which he informed the delegation that agriculture sector
contributes about 24 percent of the GDP and employs 47 percent of the labour
force. He said most subsectors of agriculture have either remained static or
have declined during the last three decades, with the exception of livestock.
Therefore, there is considerable scope for improvement in production and in the
processing of primary output, he added.
