Apr '08
The average per hectare production of cotton has increased, thanks to the widespread popularity and adoption of BT cotton.

According to Harmohinder Singh Chattha, Agricultural Minister of Haryana, the state has witnessed a considerable increase in its cotton output and farmers are receiving enormous benefits by embracing BT cotton variety.

The minister stated that this year in Haryana, the area under BT cotton cultivation covers nearly 90 percent of the total area under cotton crop.

Being one of the major cash crops in the state, cotton is grown over an area ranging between 4.5 and 6 lakh hectares with an average per hectare production amounting to 663 kilogram in the period 2007-08.

The Agriculture Minister also disclosed his intention of organizing special training camps to educate farmers on the process of sowing cotton seeds.

The State Government would assign frontline demonstration plot on cotton production and provide farmers with agricultural inputs for the plots, free of cost. Besides, the agricultural department has also purchased sowing machines and pneumatic cotton planters for the purpose.

A complete series of programs will be organized in the days to come to familiarize farmers with the latest and advanced agricultural technologies.

Mr Chattha affirmed that sowing of indigenous variety of cotton seed would be completed by the end of this month while the American and BT cotton variety would have to wait till the end of May.
