As known, around 42.3% of the national labor in Pakistan are engaged in agricultural production. In the USD304.0 billion worth of GDP, 19.52% is from agriculture. The country boasts a cultivable land area of 34.5 million ha and 70% of its agriculture business is concentrated in Punjab.


Main agricultural crops in Pakistan include wheat, corn and rice; main economic crops are sugarcane, cotton, orange, potato and mango.


As a matter of fact, the annual sales revenue of plant protection products and special fertilizers in Pakistan grew by over 10% every year during 2012-2017, reaching USD500 million in 2017. In the future, along with the local economic development, the growing population will demand more grains, which means crop yields need improvement. Therefore, the demand for agrochemicals will keep increasing.


²  Pesticides: the annual demand volume of pesticides in Pakistan exceeds 74,000 tonnes, mainly insecticides (56%), herbicides (21%), fungicides (10%) and micro-nutrients (13%).


²  Fertilizers: in addition to traditional fertilizers like urea, DAP, nitrophosphate and SOP/MOP, the demand for bio-fertilizers including humic acid, amino acids, fulvic acid and seaweed fertilizers is also growing fast.


The annual demand volume of main crop seeds in Pakistan is 1.68 million tonnes, among which that for wheat, cotton, rice, corn and oil crop seeds is 1.08 million tonnes, 40,000 tonnes, 42,500 tonnes, 31,900 tonnes and over 10,000 tonnes respectively. The local annual seed supply volume is 310,000 tonnes, the annual imported seeds is 46,300 tonnes and there is an import shortage of seeds for wheat, corn, potato, oil crops and vegetables.
