Current cotton crop conditions, production trends, and traceability

He said that government is trying its best to fulfil all the demands of textile sectors, and today the textile industry has become stronger after 10 years. Talking to media Chief Minister Punjab Mohsin Naqvi said that the army helicopters and drones were spraying pesticides to save the cotton crop and we are thankful of Pakistan Army for complete support.

He said after the cotton, rice production was very good, but there were many difficulties in seed research in Pakistan. CM said that it is not the work of a single person; we achieved our targets as a team. “We are trying hard for better production of wheat also,” he said.

Mohsin Naqvi said the government is taking a lot of measures to check the business of fake medicines.

Why not wait until the harvesting is complete, before you start celebrating. Who knows if this is just an early arrival of the crops as it happens sometimes.

This bumper crop is very good news. Now Gohar sahib needs to make sure it goes into value added made-ups for export, and not just into yarn of grey cloth.
