Cotton consumption is rising continuously across the globe but the production is less as compared to its consumption.

This was stated by Director Central Cotton Research Institute Dr Zahid Mehmood while chairing a training workshop in Multan on Monday.

He said cotton consumption could increase further in case awareness on benefits of cotton product is created at international level.

Dr Zahid Mehmood said main objective of holding workshop was to consider different ways and means to improve cotton production. He stated that use of modern technology was of vital importance for getting enhanced cotton production.

Project Manager WWF Mehr Muhammad Saleem informed that they were working to promote cotton as environmental friendly, low inputs expenses and easing cultivation methodology.
