Pakistan Seed Congress -transformed by seed innovation.

Earlier this week, the University of Agriculture, Faisalabad, hosted the Third Pakistan Seed Congress. The congress’s main focus was on how Pakistani agriculture can be transformed by seed innovation. MCIA was joined by experts from the UN FAO, ISTA, Iowa State University, government officials, academics, and leaders in the seed industry in Pakistan. Recommendations made at this event included the need for public-private partnerships, creating and maintaining a reliable seed system, breeding hybrid seeds, and introducing new technologies. The attendance of over 200 participants from all over the county demonstrated unequivocally that high-quality seed and a robust seed system form the foundation of Pakistan’s agricultural economy. We appreciate Dr. Irfan Afzal’s gracious invitation and all the hard work by his team to make this event a huge success! Read the original Linkedn post here.
