Recently, the government has taken numerous steps towards the digitization of land records that can help develop the agricultural sector in general and farmers in particular.
According to the Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Food Security, Jamshed Iqbal Cheema, the government is focusing on the welfare of farmers that aims to improve their net income through improved crop production. According to Iqbal Cheema, the agriculture, livestock, dairy farming, and fishery industry has immense potential, and improvement in this sector can boost the local economy.
The government is taking measures under a comprehensive strategy to develop the agriculture sector on modern lines, help deal with food insecurity, and water scarcity simultaneously. The digitization of agricultural land will play a key role in introducing international best agriculture practices in farming and land water management. Despite being a water-scarce country, Pakistan employs agricultural practices that consume unsustainable amounts of water. Therefore, the provincial and federal governments need to collaborate to implement agricultural practices that consume the minimum amount of freshwater and generate improved crop yields.
