CLCV affects 15% cotton crop in Punjab

Cotton Leaf Curl Virus (CLCV) has attacked around 15 percent cotton belt in Punjab's major cotton growing areas, which would negatively affect on cotton production.

Pertaining to this, a senior member of Pakistan Yarn Merchants Association (PYMA), Shakeel Ahmad stated that, the cotton growers should take utmost care of cotton virus attacks and take agricultural scientists' assistance.

Attack of CLVC and white fly on cotton crops would cut the size of the overall crop by around 18 percent and will take toll on the quality of crop this season, he said. Rahimyar Khan, Bahawalpur, Bahawalnagar, Sahiwal, Vehari, Pak Pattan, Burewala, Chistian and Chichawatni areas are affected by CLCV.

Most of the Bt cotton varieties were marketed in Pakistan with an incorrect notation of resistance to all pests. However, in some cases BT cotton seeds were blended with non-Bt cotton seeds, which affected the crop. Low Bt toxin and poor gene expression in Bt cottonseeds might prove harmful for cotton crops in the country, said Ahmad.

Use of spurious pesticides and hot weather affected the standing cotton crop of the country, said a member of Kissan Board Rahimyar Khan, Akbar Khan.
