The Sino-Pak Bio Health Agriculture Overseas Sci-Tech Demonstration Park was officially opened at the University of Haripur, which is situated in the beautiful province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, last week.
It was a historic occasion. The University of Haripur in Pakistan and the Northwest Agriculture and Forestry University in Xianyang, China collaborated to create this amazing project, which represents a major advancement in the field of bio-health agriculture.
Dr. Abdul Ghaffar, a postdoctoral fellow at North West A & F University, told Gwadar Pro, “The project aims to modernize Pakistan’s agriculture, increase productivity, and lift more people out of poverty by sharing new technologies and crop varieties.” According to him, one of the primary areas of cooperation is still the production of high-yielding Chinese and local varieties of various crops and vegetables.
Three carefully thought-out phases will be used to create the Sino-Pak Bio Health Agriculture Overseas Sci-Tech Demonstration Park.
A demonstration area is being established as the first phase of the Sino-Pak Bio Health Agriculture Overseas Sci-Tech Demonstration Park development.
This region will act as a prototype for growing crops with little input of resources and a strong emphasis on enhancing the value of agricultural output.
Demonstrating sustainable agriculture techniques that prioritize efficiency, lessen resource usage, and enhance product quality is an essential first step. This stage lays the groundwork for the park’s goal of promoting cutting-edge, eco-friendly farming methods.
The park will be advanced significantly by the time of the second phase. It entails a larger financial outlay for advanced agriculture technologies.
This stage demonstrates the dedication to remaining at the forefront of agricultural technology improvements.
It will include cutting-edge methods and strategies that have the potential to greatly increase output, enhance crop quality, and simplify several processes throughout the agricultural value chain.
This phase also emphasizes the building of cutting-edge agricultural laboratories and training programs to develop talent and create an atmosphere that is favorable to research and innovation.
The Sino-Pak Bio Health Agriculture Overseas Sci-Tech Demonstration Park is set to transition into its third and final phase, which will center on a more comprehensive approach to agriculture.
This stage includes big data technology integration, enhanced management techniques, and agricultural macro monitoring.
A thorough understanding of the agriculture industry is ensured by macro monitoring, which makes it possible to allocate resources and make precise decisions.
The development of agriculture that is sustainable is facilitated by improved management techniques. Big data technology integration is a forward-thinking strategy that makes data-driven decision-making, precision farming, and better resource management possible.
Both parties decided during the discussion to expand modern agricultural cooperation in exchange for vegetables and other agricultural kinds.
They discussed several important topics important to the development of agriculture, such as how to increase yields and enhance the quality of fruits, vegetables, and other goods.
Later, to see the ongoing field trials and the application of nano biochar, which aided in boosting the production of eggplant, gourd, and okra, the Chinese university group visited the University of Lahore.
They looked at research that supported vegetable production through bio-healthy agriculture, investigated the physiological features of salt tolerance in wheat, and investigated the impact of bio-fertilizers on salt stress tolerance in maize.
The use of bio-health nano fertilizers and their applications for climate-resilient and sustainable farming in Pakistan, as well as the observation of the microbial bioprocessing of cress seed mucilage to produce bioactive oligosaccharides, were noted.
