Pakistan: Flower growers in Sindh face water shortage

Flower growers in Sindh (Pakistan) are reluctant to cultivate seasonal varieties this year due to acute water shortage.

The plantation of at least eight varieties in Sindh, locally known as gando (marigold), gul-e-sultan, gul-e-daudi, cut flower, tulip and others, usually starts in late August every year. These plants take 40 to 45 days to grow and become productive. These flowers are most profitable. Hence, growers always show preference to have these seasonal flowers in their fields, but this year, they express fear due to a water crisis.
