Pakistan becomes the 6th largest date producer in the world ￼
What happened: The capital of Khairpur District in Pakistan’s Sindh province holds a very important place in Pakistan’s date production due to the favorable climate conditions in the region. Khairpur produces nearly 0.28 million tons of dates every year to contribute in Pakistan’s economy.
Details: A local publication’s report stated, “Pakistan occupied the sixth position among the top date producers in the world, the first five being Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran and Iraq, in that order.” It is pertinent to mention that agriculture is an essential part of not only Khairpur but of Pakistan, too. Not just men but women also help in date harvest during the season.
