Advice to cotton growers

The Punjab Agriculture Department has advised growers to bury sticks after picking cotton as it will kill American bollworm and army worm.
Agriculture experts told APP on Friday that farmers should start picking cotton when the dew completely dries and 50 percent of cotton boll is open.
Farmers should avoid picking cotton from half-open cotton bolls and follow the right direction of picking which is from down to upward. Phutti should be placed in sunlight on cotton cloth and properly cleaned of twigs and leavit.
Phutti should not be stored in polypropylene sacks, they said, adding that cotton sacks were suitable for storing it. Neat and clean cotton will not only fetch foreign exchange but also improve the financial condition of farmers, they added.
