In its pre budget proposal, the Pakistan Cotton Ginners Association (PCGA) has demanded the government to announce a National Cotton Policy and also a bailout cum incentive package for stakeholders in the cotton industry. PCGA has demanded that the cotton policy be announced before the cotton sowing season, while incentives must be announced immediately.

"We also demand a complete ban on sowing sugarcane in core cotton zones and also to not permit setting up of sugar mills in these zones," Pakistani media reports quoted PCGA chairman Dr Jeso Mal as saying.

PCGA added that if these recommendations were accepted by the government, there was a likely hood of cotton production reaching 20 million bales.

The PCGA chairman also informed that the cotton sector is facing a number of challenges including low yields, high price of agriculture inputs, higher intensity of pest attacks, irrigation water deficiency, etc. (AR)
