Wish List.

Sep 21, 2010

I am really moved by the tremendous response I am receiving by members of Kitchen gardener  to help out flood affected Poor farmers recently devastated by worst flood in history.

Susan.E.Roth suggested that I give a wish list for the convenience  of those members who would like to contribute and be a part of this collective afford of seed distribution program initiated on kitchen gardeners.org

Few members are inquiring about plant. Hardiness zone of Pakistan.

Taking into account

 http://www.usna.usda.gov/Hardzone/hzm-nm1.html

With temperature ranging from -2C c to 40 C, I presume that most of Pakistan except northern area can be placed in zone8, 9, 10, 11.

 

The northern areas temperature ranging from -15C to -5C can be placed in zone 6 and 7.

 

Much of Pakistan is  classified as arid to semi-arid with a tropical or subtropical climate. Pakistanexperiences four somewhat distinct seasons: winter (December-February), spring (March-April),

Summer (May-September), and autumn (October-November).

 During the spring and autumn seasons, daily temperatures do not exceed 10-25°C, while winters, temperatures fall to single digit figures with occasional frost.

Summers are considerably warmer with day temperatures between 40C and 50°C.

In the mountainous areas northern region, subzero temperatures are common during the winter...

Major crops of Pakistan are The major crops grown in Pakistan are wheat, rice, maize, sugarcane, cotton, pulses (gram, mash,mung, lentils, etc.), millets, barley, oats, onions, potatoes, tobacco, oilseeds viz. canola rapeseedand mustard, soybean, sesamum, groundnut etc. In addition, horticultural crops including almost all the fruits and vegetables are grown.

It would be impossible to send seed of major crops through post, because of bulk quantity requirement. So it would be more practical to confine ourselves to seed of vegetables.
