Pakistani cotton to be disease resistant with Chinese tech
China and Pakistan agreed to a material transfer pact between the two countries in the next two years and transfer of Chinese genetic engineering and functional genomics technologies to fight cotton pests to the latter at the first Sino-Pak international conference on ‘Innovations in cotton, breeding and biotechnology’ in Multan recently.

The three-day conference was hosted by the Muhammad Nawaz Sharif University of Agriculture in Multan, according to Pakistani media reports. The conference will be held every year now.

Director of agriculture research in the Punjab province Abid Mehmood said Chinese and Pakistani scientists will jointly work to improve cotton crop and providing hybrid seed to farmers.

Chinese scientist Zhang Rui said China is ready to transfer more than 200 BT cotton varieties cultivated there to Pakistan. (DS)
