Farmer Stories Abdul
Leading the path to organic cotton farming
Meet Abdul Razzaq, a 42-year-old organic cotton farmer from Tehsil Nal, in the Khuzdar District of Pakistan, who has become a source of inspiration and is leading the path for others in his area to take up organic cotton farming too.
The Khuzdar District in Balochistan is a predominantly rural area where the local population relies heavily on agriculture as their primary source of income. As organic farming can lead to higher market prices for cotton and higher profits for the farmers (as Abdul’s story proves to us), it can become especially crucial in Khuzdar, one of Pakistan’s poorest districts.
