Pakistan is the sixth largest producer of dates in the world.
Thanks to suitable climate conditions, Khairpur in Sindh occupies central place in the country’s date production.
Agriculture is central to Khairpur’s economy and date production plays a vital role in providing people with sustainable livelihoods
Not only from adjacent localities, but people migrate to Khairpur with their families from Punjab and Balochistan as well and settle near the date farms. The internal migration begins as the harvest season approaches towards the end of May.
