      CABI’s centre in Pakistan coordinates our activities in Central and Western Asia. Small-scale farming here is widespread, employing a large percentage of the population in many areas. Agriculture contributes heavily towards the region’s economy and its development.


      CABI’s centre in Pakistan was established in 1957, and coordinates CABI activities in Central and Western Asia. This is a region where small-scale farming is widespread, employing a large percentage of the population in many areas. Agriculture contributes heavily towards the GDP of countries in Central and West Asia, and is highly important to the development of the region.

      The centre works to help farmers in the region increase yields, improve the quality of crops and access markets, in a sustainable, environmentally-sensitive way.

      Access to knowledge, and farmer involvement and participation is key to the centre’s work. The centre pioneered the Farmer Field School approach and has delivered training on subjects including good agricultural practice (GAP), sanitary and phyto-sanitary (SPS) measures, integrated pest and crop management, and business and marketing skills.

      The centre’s horticultural expertise helps local smallholder farmers improve their production and profitability by providing them with access to better quality seeds, and encouraging farmers to adopt good, sustainable soil and production practices. Integrated crop management is encouraged, including managing agricultural pests and diseases through safe biological means. Regional plant clinics give farmers the information they need to lose less of their crops to pests and diseases. The centre also helps farmers overcome barriers to getting their crops to market.

      Post-disaster agricultural support is provided by the centre.? Individuals and groups are encouraged to plan for, and thus minimise the impact of such disasters.

      The centre works with a large number of donors and organizations in order to facilitate its work, including national and regional governments, private sector bodies, foundations, NGOs, and other experts in the field.

      Looking to the future the centre will focus on the delivery of agricultural knowledge, using plant clinics and innovative ICT methods to reach greater numbers of farmers and give them the knowledge to make positive choices and decisions about the way they farm.

      Establishing model farms in Pakistan

      The Government of Punjab in Pakistan want to enhance its exports by 30%. However, the horticulture chain is facing difficulties exporting to international markets because produce is not meeting quality and safety standards. This project will establish model farms and build the capacity of those in the value chain, whilst building important linkages with local and international markets.
