Pakistan only contributes 0.5% to international banana market

According to Nosherwan Haider, CEO of the Sprouts Biotech Laboratories, Pakistan’s contribution to the international banana market is less than 0.5%, while China’s contribution is around 4.5%.

The lack of high-quality seeds, advanced cultivation technology and logistic facility remains a large obstacle in boosting banana production and exports in Pakistan, for which Pakistani researchers and farmers are looking forward to getting Chinese support.

“The main problem we have here is the choice of good seeds. We lack good seeds. Nowadays, we have a kind of seed known as the tissue culture seed, imported from China,” said Imran Shah, a farmer from NQ Farms.
