Increasing demand of ornamental flowers such as Gladiolus, Petunia and Marigold. Primary focus is given on the cultivation techniques of these flowers that results in the production of high quality that can be sold in the local market and generate economic source of income. Recently 30 women participants completed a 5 days training organized by SRSP on model farming of Marigold in Bara, Tehsil of Khyber District. 
The objective of the training was to promote concept of floriculture, establishment of orchards and nurseries in these areas.
