Mr Ghulam Rabbani, a well known cotton trader and a Director of the Karachi Cotton Exchange said that there was a dire need to protect the interests of the cotton growers in Pakistan, since production had been falling for the last four consecutive years.

He said, the challenge is to raise the near static cotton production of the last few years, as production targets were not being met due to many factors like crop losses and poor government policy leading to a poor crop yield.

The other factors which have led to the reduction in crop output was due to supply of poor quality seeds, fake Bt cotton seeds and counterfeit pesticides and which needed to be curbed on an urgent basis, to regain productivity levels.

The main factors leading to use of spurious cotton seeds is the delay in giving licenses to manufacturers of Bt cotton seeds which has led to import of seeds not suitable to the land and soil conditions of Pakistan.

He said all the stake holders including the APTMA had been requesting the government to implement latest technological advancements in the production of raw cotton, to help the country regain its eminent position as a cotton grower.
