Pakistani farmers lack in knowledge about proper application of fertilizers, quality seed, and efficient use of water, as well as better farm management practices. “Not a single professional farm manager is available in the country.” Food processing industries need to be pushed to ensure return to farmers and maintain a market price equilibrium. Helpful governmental policies are lacking as well, and existing policies are politically-motivated. Pakistani agriculture had a bad year in 2011 as fertilizer prices increased and produce prices dropped. Corrupt millers are also a factor in agricultural issues.
