This is not the only reason I choose Olericulture as my major though, I do, at the same time, be aware of the fact that, in many cases, a scientist may not only do the research he is interested in. He might have to work with some international companies, which export vegetable and vegetable products to different countires to earn foreign exchange or government agencies on some projects. It is my belief that one should take people's and country's needs into account. For example, Pakistan’s agriculture sector is facing certain problems like, too much use of pesticide and insecticide, the use of pesticide and insecticide directly and indirectly affects the health of human being.
