Balochistan is the largest producer of palm-dates in the country. Most Tehsils in Makran division produce high-quality dates but having no industry and lack of support by the government, the farmers are tackled with issues. When the dates produced cannot be processed in industries with the province, they bring no profit to farmers and venders.
I request the government of Balochistan to take notice of the issues farmers face in Makran and provide them with opportunities to have the palm-dates processed with the province so that they bring better profit margin for the province.
