Pakistan Army Initiates Large Scale Farming Project in South Waziristan


The Pakistan Army is ready to launch an extensive agricultural farming initiative on vast stretches of barren land located in the Zarmalan region of South Waziristan.

As reported by a national daily, this project is set to encompass a staggering 41,000 acres of land, which will be transformed into arable farmland.

Speaking about this significant endeavor, Lieutenant General Sardar Hasan Azhar Hayat, the Corps Commander of Peshawar, underscored the military’s strong commitment to advancing agricultural farming within the province.

General Hayat revealed that the Pakistan Army has meticulously devised an agricultural blueprint for the renovation and cultivation of the expansive 41,000 acres of currently infertile land in South Waziristan’s Zarmalan area.

Furthermore, he emphasized the wide array of investment opportunities available in various sectors, including minerals, hydropower, agriculture, and tourism in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) province, all of which hold the potential to significantly augment the region’s resources.

The Corps Commander went on to mention that collaborative efforts have been initiated between the Pakistan Army and the provincial government to attract investments in these diverse sectors, a move expected to yield positive outcomes for the province’s economic development.

This ambitious project not only signifies the Pakistan Army’s dedication to contributing to the nation’s food security and agricultural sustainability but also emphasizes the potential for involved growth and development within the region. As the barren lands of South Waziristan are transformed into fertile farmlands, the project holds promise not only for increased food production but also for enhanced economic opportunities and resource utilization in KPK.
