Beijing project may boost organic peach growing in Pakistan

Pakistan’s peach season usually starts in May and continues till the first week of September. According to a report by the Crop Reporting Service of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, a total of 6,330 hectares are dedicated to growing the fruit in the province. Swat produced 5,280 tons of peaches in 2018-2019, whereas Peshawar produced 1,066 tons.

In 2017, in Beijing’s Pinggu district, the Pinggu government launched an "Ecological Bridge" project, which is a sustainable ecological cycle model of "resources-agricultural products-waste-renewable resources".  

“The ‘Ecological Bridge’ project focuses on the resource utilization of agricultural waste such as fruit tree branches, livestock and poultry waste, and fallen leaves. We encourage farmers to collect agricultural wastes and animal wastes, and use technical means to make high-quality organic fertilizers. Then we will return them to the fields orderly to realize the resource re-utilization,” Gao said.
