Mar '11
Agriculture Development Commissioner (ADC) Inayatullah Khan recently revealed that, the government may set the cotton production target for the coming 2011-12 crop season at 15 million bales.

Khan while addressing a three-day conference of Pakistan Central Cotton Committee (PCCC)'s research sub-committee, called upon the agriculture scientists to develop such varieties of Bt cotton which not only provides crops, resistance against diseases, but even subsists in water scarce situations and also is of a quality, demanded by the textile sector in the country.

Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission and the provincial government's research institutions alongside agriculture scientists from all the research institutions functioning under the PCCC remained present at the meeting and shared the outcomes of the experiments carried out on cotton during last year.

Further, he revealed that, research work for developing new varieties of Bt cotton is going on at CCRI Multan, and expressed optimism that the institution would shortly come out with some concrete results. Also, he said that the research projects of the agriculture scientists should be aimed at offering crop solutions to the crop cultivators at lowest possible cost.
