New Pakistani council to realise Cotton Mission 2025 goals

Mar '18
Cotton supply chain stakeholders in Pakistan have formed a council to chalk out a joint strategy to achieve cotton production targets set under the Punjab government’s Cotton Mission 2025. A joint session of the Council of Cotton Stakeholders was recently held at the All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) Punjab office in Lahore to discuss the issue.

The council members agreed to create a level playing field across the entire value chain in Punjab by bringing down cost of inputs, improve productivity by introducing better cotton seed technology, upgrade harvest technology, improve extension services to provide timely information to farmers and reclaim area encroached by sugar cultivation, according to Pakistani media reports.

The members felt input costs of cotton farmers should be made compatible in the region and new varieties of cotton seed should be introduced. (DS)
