Shortfall in cotton output expected

Sep '09
Recent rains and virus attacks on cotton crop of the season 2009-10 will make Pakistan to face a shortfall in cotton production by around 12 percent or more than one million bales, said an official of Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MINFA).

It is estimated that the production of lint will be 10.5 million bales as the rains have damaged around 5 percent crop in Sindh, while white fly and Cotton Leaf Curl Virus (CLCV) has affected 7-10 percent of crop, added the official.

Cotton production has been directly impacted by the occurrence of diseases, claimed the official saying that this dire situation made the Pakistan Central Cotton Committee to revise the production targets.

Even after the revision, the production would not be able to meet the target, which is 13.5 million bales, said the official.

The country's cotton production during last crop season was about 10.8 million bales. While, according to the Pakistan Cotton Ginners Association (PCGA), during last season the country achieved 11.7 million bales of cotton, which was lower by 2.2 million bales of the targeted figure.

In the year 2008-09, the final cotton arrival was 113,49029 bales at the ginneries. 103,19134 bales of this total arrival was purchased by the textile sector, while private sector exporters and Trading Corporation of Pakistan bought 294,865 and 185,033 bales respectively, and around 546,547 bales remained unsold.

Nearly 12 percent of crop in Punjab and interior Sindh will be affected due to the lack of expertise in fighting cotton virus and heavy rainfall.

Less area under cultivation due to shift towards other crops, severe weather conditions and crop diseases like CLCV and white fly are the other factors responsible for lower cotton production.

A survey revealed that the infestation level of the CLVC was low on the crop planted during the months March-April and it was medium to high on the crops planted during May-June.
