The agricultural sector of Pakistan is facing challenges like climate change, lack of modern machinery, scarcity of water, soil degradation, poor quality fertilizers, etc. These problems are becoming the cause of higher costs of grains and cereals in Pakistan and is affecting our agricultural sector.

The present rate of wheat in Punjab is around 3900-4000 PKR per man (i.e.: 40 kg). The minimum rate is 3800 per man, and the maximum price is 4300 per man. The average rate around the country is 4100.

To bring the prices back to the normal ranges government should take steps to help the farmers’ yield. They should be provided with modern machinery and better pest control for their crops. Also, there should be a check and balance system for those who are doing corruption in its distribution. Steps like these can make the system better to provide grain to the people at its actual and reasonable price.
