Farms and Seeds (F&S) have the distinction of being the first economic enterprise of the Army Welfare Trust (AWT) which was started in 1972 when the management of Pakistan Armyís farmlands at Probynabad, Boylganj, Sukker and Lahore was entrusted to the then newly raised AWT. F&S now comprise 3x large Agriculture Farms (acreages from 3700 to 5300 acres) situated at Lahore, Okara, and Pakpattan beside a seed industry i.e. Askari Seeds which has three factories located at Lahore, Okara and Sangi (District Sukker). The enterprise is mainly engaged in extensive conventional as well as ultra modern agriculture to include crops ranging from wheat, cotton, maize, sugarcane, sunflower etc to vegetables and fruits of all sorts which are being grown regularly on the farm lands. In addition, fish farming & floriculture is also being under taken on advanced scientific lines with the result that by the grace of God, we are now among the main trend setters in our region in terms of exercising maximum economy in the use of water, fertilizer, pesticides and employing state of the art farming implements. Our seed industry too, is now one of the most reputed seed suppliers of the country who are helping the farmers of Punjab, Khyber Pukhtunkhwa and Sind, to enhance the yield and quality of their crops.
Needless to mention that we are a prominent profit earning venture in Pakistanís Agriculture Sector, having the honour of contributing significantly in production of food, fibre and other farm commodities, thus helping promote the overall agricultural economy of the Nation in a big way.
The future vision of F&S is focussed on enhancement of profits through vaue addition of products and access to export markets.
