The plans to establish the museum was announced during a scholarly exchange program held at the UAF. The Vice Chancellor Iqrar Ahmad Khan was present at the occasion.
The Vice Chancellor has confirmed the museum will hold various species of insects that will help promote research and development.
Overcoming the shortage of fodder across the nation was also discussed. It was decided that a laboratory safety course should be introduced in order to create awareness about the protocol of laboratories and precautionary measures.
The country is blessed with immense resources but we are not tapping the potential. Water scarcity, low agricultural productivity, increasing population and climate changes pose threats to food insecurity,”
It was urged that the agricultural experts work together with the farmer community to address the issue faced by all the growers of Pakistan.
