The Punjab Seed Council (PSC) has granted its approval for cultivation of 18 cotton varieties in Punjab province of Pakistan.

At its 42nd meeting, the PSC considered proposals of 26 varieties of Bt cotton and non-Bt cotton, developed by various research institutes across the country, for allowing their farming in the province.

Prior to approval, the breeders various cotton varieties presented their case by informing about characteristics, performance and trial results of their individual candidate varieties.

Based on the data provided, four new Bt cotton varieties – CIM-598, A-one, FH-114 and SITARA-009, were approved for general cultivation. Another four Bt cotton varieties – IR-NIBGE-3, MNH-886, TARZAN-1 and NS-141, were granted approval for one year, during which these crop varieties would be monitored for field performance.

Similarly, four non-Bt cotton varieties – CIM-573, BH-167, SLH-317 and MIAD-852, were given green signal for general cultivation, while three other non-Bt cotton varieties – FH-941, FH-942 and NIBGE-115, have received a one-year approval for monitoring of field performance.

The PSC also gave its approval to cultivation of three Bt cotton varieties – NEELAM-121, Ali Akbar-802 and IR-1524, after successful completion of their one year monitoring period.

The decision on eight other varieties was deferred by the PSC.

Since 2008, 80 new varieties of various crops have been approved by the PSC for cultivation.
