Australian entomologist Dr Neil Forrester recently visited Karachi Cotton Association on Tuesday the October 14, who was scheduled to brief his opinion on cotton situation in Pakistan to the major stack holders in this trade. He also paid a visit to All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA).

During the meet, Dr Forrester declined any short term arrangement for enhancing the crop size in the country and discussed in detail about bad impacts of the bureaucratic behavior in country's top machinery and less commitment with country's larger interests.

The entomologist observed that multinational companies are not contributing their part to increase the crop size and not investing required money into the R&D (research & development) into the new seeds verities and better yieldage.

Dr Forrester further said, “Government must go for legislation of copy right and other patent issues to secure the interests of multinational companies to introduce new seed verities more resistant to weather impacts and pest attacks.”

He stated that the existence of CLVC (cotton leaf curl virus) in these fields may be as old as thousand years and may have a greater impact on the standing crops. Thus there is a dire need to introduce more resistance seed verities for not only mealy bug but white fly and CLVC.

He lauded for local scientists and insisted to empower them as they are smart and can be of more help, if Government utilizes their services properly.
