In an interview with PTV News Channel, Baig highlighted the emergence of smart farming, emphasizing the role of digital technology in analyzing weather patterns, monitoring crop growth, optimizing irrigation practices, and conserving groundwater resources.

Baig stressed the need to make agriculture climate-smart by adopting integrated strategies to address the challenges posed by increasing global population, land degradation, and carbon emissions.
