Pakistan’s Cotton Crop Assessment Committee (CCAC) has estimated the crop output for this season to be 9.451 million bales compared to the production target of 12 million bales. Cotton commissioner Khalid Abdullah said cotton output was expected to reach 6.671 million bales in Punjab province, 2.68 million bales in Sindh and 0.098 million bales in Balochistan.

The crop faced an extraordinary rise in temperature during the critical stages of crop development followed by an unexpected rise in temperature by 2 to 5 degrees Celsius during September, Pakistani media reports quoted Abdullah as saying.

The harsh temperature affected the plant nutrition development capability and put the plant under stress, thereby hampering late season fruit development, he said.

Irrigation water shortage in Sindh was another major issue. Severe attack of pink bollworm, both in Punjab and Sindh, white fly attack, lower seed cotton prices with rising input costs remained the key elements affecting cotton production, he added.
