Govt to restructure cotton production methods

Cotton production target for the period 2008-09 is proposed to be 14.11 million bales from an area of 3.2 million hectares during the upcoming kharif season.

Anticipated produce from some of the regions including Punjab, Sindh, NWFP and Balochistan is 11, 0.63, 0.01, and 0.10 million bales respectively.

Target for the previous year was revised and brought down from 14.14 million bales to 11.6 million bales. This is because, cotton produce was badly affected during the period by floods, rains, mealy bug attack, Cotton Leaf Curl Virus (CLCV) and by the use of sub standard quality of seeds.

Even at present, cotton arrival into the ginneries as on February 1, amounted to nearly 10.64 million bales as against 11.92 million bales registered at the similar period in 2007. Although cotton is still flowing in, a shortfall of 10.77 percent was recorded for the time being.

Government and industry officials are worried over the declining quality of cotton and higher prices for seed cotton which stand at Rs1453 per 40 kg against Rs1164 in 2007.

Finding a solution to this prevailing crisis, the Government has urged cotton growers to resort to Brazilian cotton production model.

This model has virtually transformed Brazil from an importer of cotton to one of the largest cotton exporter in a very short time. In line with this exemplary performance made by the country, experts suggest that Government of Pakistan needs to spend a substantial amount on research and development for growing cotton.
