A wide range of crops are grown in central parts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, depending on topography, rainfall pattern, irrigation, water availability, soils land potential and management practices. Most of the cropped area is planted with cereals, tobacco, sugarcane, and horticultural crops indicating farmers' reference to attain household food security needs as well as earning a respectable livelihood for their families.
