Dec '18
Pakistan’s Central Cotton Research Institute’s (CCRI) variety Bt CIM-632 received commercial license recently and farmers can now cultivate it to enhance production. The license was issued by the Punjab Seed Council. The variety was tested by CCRI for two years and approved by the National Coordinated Varietal Trial (NCVT), a national level forum of scientists.

The new variety offers resistance against climate change, pink bollworm, white flies and other viruses. It can boost production to over 40 maund per acre compared to the average production of 21-25 maund per acre, according to Pakistani media reports. One maund is 37.3242 kg. (DS)
