STAFF REPORT LHR: The cotton sowing target is likely to be missed as cotton over 1.2 million acres has so far been sown against the target of 6.2 million acres in the province of Punjab.
“The government should review its agriculture policies in the larger interest of the agriculture sector as it would leave positive impacts on this sector which is the backbone of the countrys economy,” said Pakistan Agri Forum Chairman Muhammad Ibrahim Mughal.
He said that exports of 16 billion dollars, out of 25 billion dollars depend on cotton, however, the government should take special attention towards this sector.
