Farmers expect to harvest 15.6 mn bales of cotton

There is a prediction made by the industry experts that, Pakistan will be able to harvest record cotton crop by next year, owing to rise in the sowing areas and favourable rains.

While officials have not declared any figures, private sector are of the opinion that, about 15.6 million bales of cotton is likely to get harvested this season.

If experts are to be believed, then this is a huge rise as compared to last year's harvest, which was around 12.69 million bales. The plenteous crop could probably also lead to more exports this season.

An owner of a cotton firm said that, during the Rabi season, cotton was cultivated on around 3.35 million hectares. The current aggregate return in the nation is around 740 kgs per hectare. And therefore, harvest of around 15.6 million bales of cotton is expected in the coming season.

More so, although, July and August are the key months for the success of the current crop, experts opine that farmers will still have to safeguard their crops from virus, weather changes and pests.

Around all, the slight showers witnessed in Sindh and Punjab, which has come up right after sowing, have proved to be quite beneficial for the crop. In addition, the Bt cotton seeds will also start yielding better returns for farmers, while they get used to sowing them. All this will help improve the agriculture sector and the economy per say.

Improved returns and rising acreage under cotton cultivation is likely to improve Pakistan's harvest and help them attain record cotton crop in the next harvest.
