Floriculture Industry In Pakistan (Volume II) - January 2005

Many flower-growing countries are playing important role in the international flower export market. For instance, in the Kenya's export list flowers are the third major foreign exchange earner, pore about 100 million dollars into the economy each year, as against Pakistan that is earning a few thousand dollars per year.
In the export of flowers, the compliance with WTO regulations and outdated technology would be the biggest problem for Pakistani exporters. These hurdles cannot be removed over night, no doubt Pakistan is updating technology wise but it still needs to look at alternatives to the century old growing and exporting methods it uses.

Floriculture Industry In Pakistan (Volume I) - January 2005

Horticulture sector could earn $500 to $600 million in export within next three to five years. This sector has great export potential, perhaps more than any other in Pakistan, but unfortunately Pakistan is currently exporting horticulture items worth around 126 million dollar only. It is estimated that horticulture sector could become Pakistan's second largest exporter after textile. However, it would require a vast improvement schemes, particularly to cope with new world trade organization (WTO) rules. The PHDEB's current focus is only on fruit and vegetables ike mangoes, peaches, plums, persimmons, (commonly known as Japanese fruit), onions, potatoes etc. and some attention is being given on export of cut flowers.
The world trade of cut flowers runs into billions of dollars. Netherlands serves as the center of cut flower trade. Millions of flowers are traded through the auction houses in Netherlands. Major suppliers of fresh cut flowers to these auctions are Kenya, Columbia, Zimbabwe, Ecuador, Israel and India. Flower export from Kenya has become the third major foreign exchange earner, after tea and tourism, bringing more than 100 million dollars into the economy each year.

Fertilizer Industry In Pakistan (Volume II) - December 2004

The demand of fertilizer is directly related to agricultural growth. Average yields of food crops have tremendously increased during the last decade through increased irrigation, introduction of high yielding varieties and related increase in agricultural inputs, particularly the use of fertilizer. The main market for urea is wheat grower, followed by cotton, rice and sugarcane cultivators. Wheat has the highest acreage under cultivation and therefore has the highest demand for fertilizer while sugarcane has the highest application per hectare. Trends in demand/supply of Urea, DAP, TSP, is depicted in the table-1.
For the first time urea fertilizer demand has surged all-time high. Improved cash flow of the farmers, better credit availability and higher returns from Kharif crop are stated to be the major reasons for the rocketing demand bringing a better return to the manufacturer. As a result, the share prices of the sector have had the favourable impact. It is further speculated that demand would remain at higher side even in Rabi crop.
