Pakistan: FAO, Haji Sons introduce modern vegetable seedling production

A five days’ training, including practical exercises in the field and excursions, was organized by FAO in close collaboration with Haji Sons and the Agriculture Research Institute in Quetta, Pakistan.

Twenty entrepreneurial female and 10 male farmers from districts Quetta, Nushki and Chagai, including some GoB extension and research staff, participated.

Training topics among others were: seed treatment, plant training, substrate preparation and mixing and transplanting of seedlings in the field.

Some of the promising results of this training were that male and female participants wanted to establish their own vegetable seedling nurseries in the districts with the help of AusABBA and Haji sons in 2018. Another participant (Zia Garden from Quetta), who already produces seedlings, wanted to become a dealer of Haji Sons for seeds, plastic trays and peat moss in Balochistan as well as to produce more seedlings for nearby farmers.
