The SPRING project was launched by the EU, under its regional initiative for Asia – Switch Asia, on March 30, 2012 in Sukkur, Bahawalpur and Rahimyar Khan regions of Pakistan.

The training programme was organized by WWF-P Sukkur, in collaboration with Pakistan Cotton Standard Institute (PCSI), for Switch Asia – SPRING ginners.

The one-month long training was held last month under capacity building workshop on cotton selection and grading for ginners at Switch Asia – SPRING project office in Sukkur.

The candidates learnt selection and grading of seed cotton as well as lint cotton during their training.
