The Union agriculture and farmers welfare ministry has issued directives to the cotton producing states of Punjab, Haryana, and Rajasthan to protect the crop from adverse affects of white fly attacks, according to a ministry press release.

The directives state that the sowing process may be carried out within the precincts of scheduled timeframe, only recommended seeds might be utilised, close watch might be kept on the movement of pests and timely sprinkling to check its spread.

White fly attacks last year damaged large amounts of crop in Punjab and Haryana.

To save the crop from the menace of white fly, the ministry of agriculture and farmers welfare carried out an elaborate assessment and analysis to provide preventive measures. Central Cotton Research Regional Centre, Sirsa (Haryana) recently held a meeting in which officials of the ministry of agriculture, scientists of Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) and senior officials of departments of agriculture from Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan reviewed the preventive measures to check the menace of white fly. 

ICAR has also provided a list of the pest resistant seeds for the farmers. This year emphasis is being given on the timely sowing of cotton, which begins in early April in the states of Punjab, Haryana, and Rajasthan. (HO)
