Why Farmdar?

By 2050, humanity will need to produce 100% more food to feed the global population. If global agricultural productivity remains at today’s levels, additional agricultural land will be required, and the climate impact of this will be catastrophic. These problems are accentuated in Pakistan, where agriculture is unsustainable and climate change is the primary threat to our future.

We’re a purpose-driven deep-tech company at the forefront of transforming agriculture in Pakistan by improving sustainability, efficiency and productivity with data and AI.

We attract, develop, and seek to excite and retain, exceptional people. We do this by providing an environment in which our people feel respected, and can thrive, grow, and be their best.


We believe a great workplace is one that represents the world we live in and how beautifully diverse it can be. That means we have no judgement when it comes to any one of the things that make you who you are. All you need is passion and a desire to be part of one of the most innovative startups in Pakistan.
