Fatima Fertilizer signs MoU with KPK Government to increase food security

Peshawar, February 15, 2022: A formal MoU was signed between Fatime Fertilizer and the Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (Agriculture department) on Tuesday, February 15, 2022 at a local hotel in Peshawar. The aim of this collaboration was to promote awareness amongst local farmers to maximize their crop yield through a balanced application of fertilizer. Notable representatives from KPK’s agriculture department as well as officials from Fatima Fertilizer attended the agreement signing ceremony.

Balanced use of fertilizer is strongly recommended by experts to improve fertilizer use efficiency and is recommended as a common practice for farmers. It not only helps to increase the average crop yield, but also the overall profitability of the farmer. Furthermore, it also essential to achieve agriculture sustainability and enhance the soil’s nutrient profile. 

While speaking about this partnership, Rabel Sadozai, National Marketing Manager at Fatima Fertilizer said, “This MoU singing is an important step to highlight the significance of balanced use of fertilizer that not only helps the farmer to reduce his cost of farm inputs but also helps to maximize his average crop yield and profitability. Enhancing our food production is most crucial to protect our national food security.”

Naseerullah Khan, Head of Technical Services at Fatima Fertilizer further mentioned, “Balanced application of fertilizer is globally recognized as a well-known as a major cost and performance determinant for food production. There is a significant gap between potential and actual crop yield in Pakistan. Reducing this gap will not only present a major opportunity to protect our national food security but to also improve the small-scale farmer’s economic status and prosperity.”
