5. Organic Farming

Part of the Panacea project is to have an organic farm in each village of the UC-85. This is done through the collaboration of the WLO and Panacea Cooperatives. This cooperative is certified by Pakistan Organic Foods Directorate, and in process of Global Gap and Euro-gap certification. These farms practice modern organic farming practices without the use of any pesticide, fertilizer or any other inorganic materials.

A group of twenty farmers including ten women have been trained by the Pakistan Agricultural Research Council for Organic farming. These farmers are working as master trainers to train other farmers for best practices.

WLO is in a process of registering first Organic farming cooperative in Pakistan with the regulatory departments of the government.
