Conservation Agriculture is a farming system that can prevent losses of arable land while regenerating degraded lands
Promoting maintenance of a permanent soil cover, minimum soil disturbance, and diversification of plant species.
Enhancing biodiversity and natural biological processes above and below the ground surface
Contributing to increased water and nutrient use efficiency and to improved and sustained crop production.
SACAN Services was established duly registered with relevant authorities in 2008 with the aim to combat resource degradation caused by conservative agricultural practices being followed for crop production to meet food, fiber and shelter requirements of the growing population of Pakistan.
