About PAR

PAR at a glance

PAR has transformed the Pakistani agricultural landscape by introducing price discovery & information transparency which has allowed farmers and businesses to make decisions based on data.

Our Story

We are on the mission to increase agri data access

Players in the agri-supply chain seemed to not be well equipped with appropriate and timely data, which would lead to mismanagement of crop cultivation and lower yields. PAR’s clients have benefitted from our advisory and digital information services over the years, such as climate & crop advisories, price discovery, crop surveys, crop reports and analyses. From 2011 onwards, PAR sought to enable agriculture players to improve their business performances.

TIMELINE

Our Greatest Milestones

First Crop Surveys

Realizing that data on Pakistani commodities was extremely sparse and difficult to find, Rehan Shoukat began collecting data through crop surveys for the commodity trading house, Fund Marketing International (FMI).

2011
Company Established

Pakistan Agriculture Research (PAR) was established in November 2011. The company was founded by Rehan Shoukat, President of Fund Marketing International (FMI).

2015
Company Expansion

Pakistan Agriculture Research (PAR) was set up to focus on providing information services to the agricultural supply-chain across Pakistan and globally. Through various subscription packages, PAR began to sell the data it collected and processed.

2020
Services Restructured

As the agri-tech wave took root in Pakistan, PAR consolidated its products and services to facilitate clients that required and needed access to primary, timely and accurate data. This includes crop prices, crop volumes & estimates, water positions, crop surveys and climate and crop advisories.

2022
Launch of Consolidated Agri Platform

By bringing its various services under one banner, PAR digitized all its services and products under a single digital platform to increase the ease of accessing agriculture data, research and information all on one portal.

Weaving the agricultural fabric across the supply chain

"PAR has embarked on the responsibility of accurately enabling price discovery for commodities in the entire Agri supply-chain. We aim to structure a system that enables farmers to utilize our climate and crop advisory and access to markets to make informed decisions when it comes to their produce. Together, we play our part to ensure the food security of Pakistan. Our ethos is to be a socially responsible enterprise that empowers farmers, traders, industrialists and agriculturalists by ensuring access all agri related information to reconfigure crop management in Pakistan. Our vision is one in which everyone benefits, be it our clients, the farmers, traders or you."
