Farmers asked to adopt resource conservation technology
In order to keep the soil's organic matter intact, reduce land preparation cost and ensuring timely sowing of wheat, the adoption of the Resource Conservation Technology
(RCT) approach by farmers can ensure solution to address these issues, said the sources.
Farm Technology Changing Agriculture
Hi-tech systems offer tractors that operate without drivers No one is denying that technology is changing the face of the world. Tomorrow's technology will bring sweeping changes to every industry, including agriculture, and may one day make it possible to conduct business and control production without a great deal of human labor.
Scientists urged to educate farmers about 'Zero Tillage'
Scientists can play an important role in socio-economic uplift of the country utilising their capabilities in various fields particularly in agriculture sector.
Use of water conservation technology
It is bewildering how a country facing severe shortage of water should be looking for higher productivity by extending cultivated area instead of applying conservation methods and technologies increasingly in use across the world; even water affluent countries are harnessing them to boost productivity.
Zero-Tillage Curriculum Development Workshop
Various resource conservation technologies have been adopted in the recent past to improve the productivity of rice-wheat system. Of these, adoption of zero-tillage for timely planting of wheat after rice harvest was popularized among the farming community. However, new challenges are emerging in the adoption of this technology on large scale.
New technology can regenerate plants in large number
The plants regeneration by cell and tissue culture technique can complement conventional breeding procedure and plants can be regenerated in a large number.
However, the success of this breeding technology depends upon the efficiency of the cultured cells with desired characteristics.
Rs 100 million project to promote breeding technology

Techniques of brackish water utilization for agriculture
In view of
the scarcity of canal water and scanty rainfalls, the
importance of brackish water has increased manifold. This is
the only alternative to meet the severe shortfalls of
irrigation water occurring in the recent years. The quality of
groundwater does not permit its blind use and it is direly
needed that brackish water is managed scientifically for using
in crop production. Following are the techniques developed
through greenhouse and field studies for sofe usage of such
irrigation technology holds big promise
Most of the land area
of Pakistan is classified as arid to semi-arid because
rainfall is not sufficient to grow agricultural crops, forest
and fruit plants and pastures.
Full grown plants from tiny bits of leaves
Tissue culture, in simple
terms, is the science of growing plant cells, tissues or
organs isolated from the mother plant, on artificial media.
