Pakistan: Declining fertiliser usage hurting agriculture output

Business Recorder (Sep. 26, 2013) | The reduced application of urea for the important food crops could badly hurt the output of these crops that could lead to food security in the country. Due to rising input cost for planting the most important crops from agriculture economy and food security point of view, country’s wheat production in 2013 stood at around 24 million tons, equivalent to the wheat production level of 2009.
