According to the commissioner, data on the cultivable area in the Rawalpindi division will be collected for the past 20 years, and information on each crop will be checked. A study will be performed regularly to assess which crop’s production area has declined or increased.
He claimed that the region under cultivation of certain crops had declined dramatically and that these factors would be analysed using 20 years of evidence, accompanied by routine preparation.
