According to Cotton Commissioner in the Ministry of National Food Security and Research Dr Khalid Abdullah, subsidy for PB Rope imports for about 2,00,000 hectares would be provided to help overcome threats of pest attacks on crop during its fruiting season and save the crop from damage.

He said the amount is being allocated to enhance per-acre cotton output across the crop sowing areas of the country.

Cotton Commissioner informed that government in close coordination with private sector had also designed a holistic program to ensure provision of certified cotton seed to farmers in order to achieve maximum per-acre crop output during the season and get more profit.
