Implementing Cotton Control Act can raise production: PGCA
Pakistan’s cotton production can be raised up to 15 million bales if the Cotton Control Act is properly implemented, according to Haji Muhammad Akram, chairman of Pakistan Cotton Ginners Association (PCGA). Cotton production would be around 11.5-12 million bales this year with production in Punjab expected to rise and that in Sindh likely to fall, he said.

Higher power tariff for tube wells, water shortage, no announcement of support price and substandard and fake seeds as some of the factors behind lower production, Akram told a news agency.

Urging the government to extend support to each ginning factory and introduce upgraded ginning technology for production of clean cotton, he said in most of the cotton-producing zones, the water table is either down or water has turned saline.

Each of the 1300 ginning factories need an investment of at least Rs 5 million for upgradation, he added. (DS)
