FF EXPERIMENTAL & SEED MULTIPLICATION FARM NUKERJI, SIND
Nukerji Experimental and Seed Multiplication Farm was initially a PIDC project established in 1954 over an area of 2,498 acres, for supplying sugarcane to sugar mills around Tando Muhammad Khan. In 1955, Fauji Foundation entered into negotiation with PIDC for setting up and running the sugar mills and farms as a joint venture. In 1959, Fauji Foundation acquired the entire project from PIDC. In October 1979, the Farm started functioning as a separate entity and was re-designated as Fauji Foundation Experimental and Seed Multiplication (FFE & SM) Farm Nukerji.
