Agronomic Research Station, Bahawalpur

Agronomy is continually striving to improve the standard of lives of people around the globe. Incessant green fields of wheat, rice, maize, cotton, sugarcane, fodders, oilseeds and pulses do not grow fortuitously. Instead these crops need agronomic management to accomplish the achievable potential productivity. Concurrently, arduous work on the part of the grower, scientific and technological services by the agronomists are prerequisites to explore potential productivity of field crops. Punjab province has different ecological zones, which have their own problems and constraints in crop production. The project “Strengthening of Agronomic Research and Farming System in Punjab” was started in 1984 to elucidate causes of low yield and to solve problems for achieving potential productivity. All the development work completed till January 1987 and the station was equipped with agricultural machinery and equipment.


 Agronomy is the combination of science and art to get maximum production from per unit area which ultimately improves living standard of the farmers and serve the humanity


 To develop modern and improved production technologies for field crops, fodders, oil seed, cereals and pulses
