Pakistan certifies 1st organic cotton bale in Balochistan
Pakistan’s Balochistan province recently witnessed the certification of the country’s first organic cotton bale at a ceremony organised at Kot Sabzal. The province is committed to promoting organic agriculture and would work on developing an organic agriculture policy soon, its minster for agriculture Zamrak Khan said. WWF-Pakistan supports the initiative.

A consultative workshop was conducted in which ginners, spinners, textiles, brokers and brands participated and presented their concerns regarding the development of a tenable supply chain of organic cotton in the country, according to a report in a top Pakistani English-language daily.

In 2015, WWF-Pakistan secured financial support from the C&A Foundation, and in collaboration with Balochistan’s Directorate of Agriculture Extension, started work on a project titled ‘Organic Cotton Cultivation Promotion with Small and Marginal Tribal Farmers in Pakistan’. (DS)
