cottonLAHORE: Director General Agriculture (Ext & AR) Punjab Dr Muhammad Anjum Ali on Wednesday informed farmers that if rain water stayed for more than 24 hours in cotton crop it affected the growth.

He advised farmers to follow steps to avoid big damage.

He asked farmers to drain out an extra rainwater into other fields and water could also be drained to the near sugar cane and paddy crops if these crops needed water.

More water could harm roots of cotton plant and if the crop turns yellow drain out water and than spray 2 percent mixture of urea on wet land and plants would start growing again.

He also advised farmers to carry out pest scouting twice a week to avoid any sort of insect attack.
