The government has devised a programme of incentives to encourage farmers to grow more cotton in order to boost exports and conserve valuable foreign exchange.

In this regard, the authorities concerned have been working on war footings to encourage the farmers to cultivate cotton and revive its production in the country as the national economy cannot be improved without a revolution in cotton and its allied industry.

An official at the Ministry of National Food, Security and Research while highlighting a brief detail of some incentives said minimum support price will be announced to encourage farming community and to bring maximum land under cotton production.

He told APP that extra efforts are being made to boost cotton yield and prevent diseases and pests.
