The Cotton expert Dr Sagher Ahmed, a Ph.D scholar and dynamic farmer highlights the discrepancy use of fertilizers that was destructive fertility of soil and resulting low productivity.
Soil health was unnoticed across the country by the farmers due to lack of awareness and knowledge about maintaining fertility of the soil. The use of nitrogen and phosphorus were still under-dose and some other micro was also ignored during the preparation of soil.
Dr Sagher said that millions of people were fond of to cotton and textile sectors adding that farmers were rapidly shifting their attention on various other crops instead of cash-crop-cotton.
In order to keep focused government should make sure quality seed, subsidy on fertilizers, farmer’s education-awareness, and stop urbanization on fertile land. He added, “Farmers should apply fertilizers with respect to the soil sample reports.”
