Farm Advisory Services
Fauji Fertilizer Company Limited has been providing Advisory Services to the farming community throughout Pakistan since 1981, for increasing the agriculture production in general and the farmers’ income in particular. Our organization in pursuit of its national commitment and moral obligation maintains regular contact with farmers and Agricultural Institutions to ensure efficient transfer of modern agricultural technology in an effective way.
The Company is providing quality farm advisory services all over the country through its 5 Farm Advisory Centers and Regional Agri Services Officers. Farm Advisory Centers are located at Hassan Abdal, Sahiwal, Multan, Bahawalpur and Sukkur.
Each center has a team of four Agricultural Experts, providing multifarious advisory services through crop demonstrations, field days, farmer meetings, crop seminars and farm visits. All the centers are fully equipped with modern sophisticated computerized Soil & Water Testing Laboratories and high-tech extension equipment. Moreover, FFC has also established a micronutrient and plant tissue analysis laboratory at Farm Advisory Centre, Sahiwal having Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer and other analytical instruments. Soil testing is a valuable tool to propagate appropriate and balanced use of chemical fertilizers and to identify soil problems. Soil/water samples are collected from farmers’ fields and analyzed in the laboratories. Fertilizer recommendations & reclamation reports are developed on the basis of soil analysis and delivered to the growers for the balanced use of fertilizer and to reclaim the soil. The soil/water testing and micronutrient analysis facility is offered free of cost. Besides these five farm advisory centers, we have Agri Services Officers, spread all over the country and extending these services in their respective areas.
To further strengthen our advisory services and facilitate farmers, we also publish crop, vegetables and fruits brochures in addition to agro-grams, posters and pamphlets containing latest information regarding production technologies of crops, vegetables and fruits grown in Pakistan. For a stronger direct link and timely guidance of farmers, we publish Newsletter - Zari Report in Urdu and Sindhi on quarterly basis.
