Absence of crop zoning hampers Pak cotton production
The area under cotton sowing in Pakistan has reduced by 26 per cent due to the absence of appropriate crop zoning in the country, posing a serious threat to the production of the cash crop, cotton commissioner Khalid Abdullah recently informed the country’s Senate Standing Committee on National Food Security and Research during a briefing.

Cotton arrival in the domestic markets reduced by 700,000 bales this fiscal compared to the last, Pakistani media reports quoted Abdullah as saying.

He stressed the need to regulate the industries to avoid crop shifting issues and take steps for crop zoning. (DS)
