ISLAMABAD - Economic Survey Report for financial year 2010-11 showed a meager 1.2 per cent growth in agriculture sector of the country with 4 per cent negative growth in major crops, largely because of last years devastating floods. The report however asserts that this years growth is double of the previous years overall agricultural growth of 0.6 per cent. But it is much lesser than 4 per cent growth in 2008-09. The report said that agriculture lost significant growth momentum as its growth slowed down to 2.7 per cent in the decade of 2000s as against 4.4 per cent in 1990s and 5.4 per cent in 1980s. The unprecedented floods in July 2010 destroyed two major crops, rice and cotton, and, as reported by Suparco, an area of 2.364 million hectares under Kharif crop was damaged. The livestock sector having 55.1 percent share in the overall agriculture sector was also impacted by the massive floods and witnessed marked slowdown growth at 3.7 per cent in the current financial year as against 4.3 per cent last year. Minor crops accounting for 10.9 per cent of overall agriculture sector grew by 4.8 per cent as against negative growth of last two years. While presenting economic survey, Finance Minister Hafiz Sheikh also said that the agriculture tax was no more a federal issue and provinces would decide about it as they have the right to collect that tax. Regarding the energy sector, the report stated that the global demand for different fuel sources is changing the overall energy-mix to support cost-effective support to economic growth. Notwithstanding falling share, oil is likely to remain the dominant fuel source in primary energy-mix till 2035 that will also create problems for the masses.
