STAFF REPORT ISB: Sustainable Cotton Production in Pakistans Cotton Ginning SMEs (SPRING) Project Coordinator Masood Khan said that there was a dire need to produce better cotton in the country.
“For foreign exchange, it is also considered as one of the major crops in the country,” Masood said this while speaking to a group of journalists during a visit to World Wide Fund Pakistans Sustainable Agriculture Programme (SAP) in Bahawalpur.
The media team visited the cotton fields where Nawabuddin, the project coordinator for PSCI, briefed them about the trainings given to cotton picker women and village women in order to create awareness about child labour, health and safety along with promoting education and precautionary measures regarding hazards on the farm.
