The project is about starting a cut flower farm near pattoki. Cut flowers growth is not a new phenomenon in floricultural sector of Pakistan; however it is an infant industry as far as its growth is concerned. The resource rich local soil provides ideal agronomic conditions for the production of cut flowers. Despite lack of knowledge on modern floricultural production techniques, difficulty in obtaining the latest varieties and the lack of infrastructure, the industry is continuously attracting new entrants. This pre-feasibility is being prepared by SMEDA and is intended to provide general information on the opportunity for an investor in the floricultural sector to develop cutflowers farm of roses for supply in local market. Roses are the most traded of all cut flower varieties around the world. The trend in Pakistan is no different.

Almost 70% populace of Pakistan is engaged directly or indirectly with the agricultural sector. Live stock is a vital part of this sector for it to continue different activities, such as, to produce milk and their bi-products. The basic need to make animal healthy and productive round the year is their diet (fodder) which must be good and persistent through out the year. But the availability of fresh fodder having same proportionate ingredients through out the year is restricted by the natural circumstances. To preserve fodder in the shape of hay by rinsing it with water and moisture by approximately 85% helps to feed animals with the same quality forage round the year. Alfalfah which is widely used as an animal feed to provide healthy and nutritious diet and plays a vital role to maintain and increase the productivity. The harvesting period is not bound to a specific season and one may reap this Alfalfah all year round. There are several benefits for haymaking as listed below: - Decrease cost of production - Ensure permanent supply of nutrients to livestock throughout the season/year Pre-Feasibility Study Fodder Production and Trading Unit PREF-27/July 2008/Rev1 - Help maintain the milk yield - Keep away the animals from diseases associated with green fodder such as bloat. Animals consume green fodder in high quantity as it is backed by water so people don’t find it economical. While Alfalfah is consumed less as the making process rinse the moisture, but give the same nutrition to the animal. Secondly, the requirement is persistent across Pakistan and round the year vis-à-vis the international market is also open and looking for a new venture to trade.

The proposed project is designed as a medium sized off-season vegetable farming unit, spreading over a land area of 7.5 acres. Off-season vegetables, such as, tomatoes, chillies, cucumber, brinjal, hot pepper, sweet peppers, watermelon, muskmelon, pumpkin, ridge-gourd (teendi) and bitter-gourd (krela) can be cultivated using low tunnel technology. However for the purpose of this pre-feasibility three crops have been proposed, namely: watermelon, muskmelon and pumpkin. The land can be utilized for green manuring during the idle period to maintain the fertility of soil. Apart from green manuring, the land can also be utilized for growing seasonal vegetables in the idle period. The estimated yield potential of the farm varies according to the selected type of vegetable. For this project a mix of three proposed vegetables is listed below. For this vegetable mix it is estimated that a 7.5-acre farm unit will yield a total of 142,375 kg per season excluding 15% wastage.

The proposed project is about establishing a Seed Oil Extraction Unit. The main theme of the project is to use seeds of different commodities for economical purposes by extracting edible oil. In addition, the project would generate revenues by processing/selling seed residuals for different economical purposes. The project may be utilize for seeds of different commodities such as Cotton, Canola, Sunflower, Coconut, Rapeseed/Mustard and Sesame etc. The selection of input commodity is the sole desire of the proprietor, however keeping in view the resource availability, cost & demand factors cottonseed is proposed for the said unit. The project would facilitate in employment generation both direct & indirect and result in utilization of seeds for more commercial purposes rather than its typical usage as animal feed. Moreover features like low cost & less complexity associated with such establishment make it more attractive project. Currently the project is being designed / proposed for major cities having potential cotton production, whereas the project could also be proposed for cities where input requirements are available or in whole seller / trading cluster of seeds. Initially project focus would be domestic market, however on its maturity national market would be consider.
