Federal Minster for Food & Agriculture, Mir Israrullah Zehri directed that, under the “Promotion of Cotton Cultivation in Balochistan Phase-II” project, cotton cultivation should be raised from present 95,000 acres to around 150,000 acres by close of the current year.

The Minister, who presided over a meeting held to review the growth of cotton, olive and palm oil projects approved in the Balochistan province, sought early disbursal of the agricultural equipments that have been procured under the federally sponsored project to enable the farmers to realize the sowing targets.

He stated that, as Balochistan houses immense potential for production of cotton, the federal government is eager to extend its support to boost its production, by means of assisting and informing farmers in the province to take up cotton cultivation.

Measures like providing superior certified seeds and equipments and educating the farmers would help them to realize their target of boosting the area under cotton cultivation in the region to around one to 150,000 acres by close of the current year, the Minister said.

He revealed that, 19 regions of Balochistan including Bolan, Kohlu, Nasirabad, Sibi, Bharkan, Khuzdar, Kharan, Chaghi, Lasbella and Jaffarabad have been picked to promote cotton cultivation.
