Sargodha is a large producer of citrus fruit, Kinnu (a type of orange), Malta, musammi, and grapefruit, as the climate is suitable for these fruits. Much of the fruit is sold domestically.
FRUITS are a vital part of agricultural exports. Large areas of the country are blessed with an ecological environment conducive to production of nearly 30 types of fruits of which citrus, mango, apple, dates, grapes, banana, melons and guava are relatively common.
Among all fruits, area under citrus, its production and exports are at the top. About 95 per cent of the citrus area is located in Punjab. The total area under fruits is 0.65 million hectares with a total production and export of 5.7 million metric tones and Rs6.4 billion respectively.
Of the total area under fruits, 29.55 per cent is under citrus and 60 per cent of it is under kinnow with more than 75 per cent production of total citrus fruits. Under citrus fruits, kinnow area, production and exports are at the top. More than 90 per cent of citrus exports are those of kinnow.
Pakistan is among the top ten kinnow (sargodha,hybrid, mandarin) producing and exporting countries. Our production capacity is 1.28 million tons per season. There are about 28 kinnow processing plants with a processing capacity each of 5-10 metric tons per hour, located at Sargodha and Karachi.
Citrus also significantly contributes to employment generation through various activities from production to harvesting and domestic and international marketing. Assuming that all kinnow produced in Punjab is domestically marketed, the employment generated from its production and marketing is estimated at about 23.48 million labour days or fulltime jobs for more than 75,000 people (about 57 million labour days in production and remaining in marketing sectors).
Kinnow is a hybrid of two citrus cultivars; King and Willow Leaf and is classified as kinnow mandarin. It was introduced from California to the Punjab Agricultural College and Research Institute, Lyallpur (now University of Agriculture, Faisalabad) in the sub-continent in 1943-44. This easy peal citrus has assumed special economic importance and export demand being acknowledged for its high juice content, special flavour, delicious taste and as a rich source of vitamin-C.
In per capita terms, the annual availability of citrus is nearly 12.5 kg of which kinnow makes up about eight kg. A consumption of eight kg per capita implies the availability of 1,206 milligrams of vitamin-C, 1520 milligrams of calcium, 684 milligrams of phosphorous and nearly 16 milligrams of iron, per head during the citrus production season. In the citrus production season, kinnow consumption can make a significant contribution to improve human diet in terms of total micronutrients intake.
There is a great need to concentrate in the area of technological improvement like tissue culture technique and genetic engineering, to enhance the production of seedless kinnow.Furthermore, our production and export of the fruit have been increased overtime only due to increase in acreage and not due to improvement in technology.
It is suggested that in Sargodha, citrus exports zone may be set up where all necessary facilities like cold stores, refrigerated transport, financial institution, SPS certifying laboratories, marketing information analysis department, etc. are available.
The resource cost ratio (RCR) analysis revealed that kinnow producers of the study area (Sargodha district) are economically efficient. This means that with the freeing up of trade and removing distortions in the domestics markets, effective incentives for citrus cultivation would substantially increase.Top
