According to a report released by China Economic Net (CEN) on Wednesday, Beijing mode may enhance organic peach farming in Pakistan. Peaches are renowned as the “Queen” of fruits in Pakistan, according to the report. It’s a unique fruit with a superb flavor and attractive appearance. Peach season in Pakistan typically begins in May and lasts until the first week of September.
According to the Crop Reporting Service of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the province has 6,330 hectares dedicated to the cultivation of the fruit. Swat produced 5,280 tons of peaches in 2018-2019, compared to 1,066 tons in Peshawar. According to Nasir Khan, an orchard owner from Swat, peaches are becoming the major source of revenue for Swat farmers. “We can add value to our peaches and sell them to other nations if we have superior farming and processing technologies,” he added.
In Beijing’s Pinggu district, this common fruit has become a business opportunity for local peach growers. In 2017, the Pinggu government launched an “Ecological Bridge” project, which is a sustainable ecological cycle model of “resources-agricultural products-waste-renewable resources”. According to Gao Chengda, a professor of Urban and Rural Development College at Beijing University of Agriculture, the rapid development of the peach industry has affected the ecological environment in Pinggu.
The orchard produces a large number of discarded branches, fallen fruit, and leaves every year.”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 peach fertilizers. Then we will return them to the fields orderly to realize the resource re-utilization,” Gao said.
