Pakistan Cotton Ginners Association (PCGA)'s Shehzad Ali Khan has refuted the claims of central cotton assessment committee that Pakistan would achieve approximately 13 million bales of cotton in the coming season. Talking to newsmen here on Friday, he said that agricultural scientists failed to evolve new varieties of cotton which could have doubled our production.He said that government failed to supply virus-free, pest-free, heat-resistant and well-germinated seed and also failed in bringing maximum area under cotton crop. Shehzad Ali Khan disagreed with the findings of the 4th meeting of Federal Textile Board (FTB) that Pakistan had recovered its cotton losses from last year and expected to achieve approximately 13 million bales of cotton in the coming season. In their separate reports, Pakistan Cotton Ginners Association (PCGA) and Cotton Commissioner informed that through close co-ordination between federal government and government of Punjab the pink bollworm which had damaged the cotton crop last year have largely been controlled.
