To produce better quality seed for next year, farmers are being advised not to grow the PAU variety within a distance of 50m from other Bt variety. “The best method for isolation is to grow desi cotton adjoining the Bt variety. Desi cotton seed is available with PAU,” Sandhu said. He added, “Because honey bees contribute to pollination, the character of our variety could change if the distance caution is not taken into consideration.” PAU has produced 30 quintals of seeds of the new variety. Of these, they have kept 16 quintals for more in-house trials and 14 quintals is being distributed among the farmers.
