Cotton Botanist

While. . Rahim Yar Khan alone contributed more than 40% of the total area and 39% of the total production of the Bahawalpur Division. Cotton is called back bone the economy of Pakistan. It contributed about 32% of the total area and 36% of the total production of the Punjab. Bahawalpur Division has great potential for growing cotton. Dera Ghazi Khan and Bahawalpur Divisions are considered the cotton zone of the Punjab. Multan. Pakistan is amongst the world’s leading producer and exporter of the cotton. It not only provides fiber. Punjab contributed about 81% of the total area and 84% of the total production of Pakistan.ECONOMIC IMPORTANCE Cotton is playing an important role directly and indirectly in generating economic growth of Pakistan. food and feed but also export it’s raw material and by products have a lion’s share in the total export of Pakistan.

1978-79 to undertake Research work on cotton under the agro-climatic conditions of the Rahim Yar Khan. being potential cotton area. .BRIEF HISTORY OF INSTITUTE Cotton Research Institute was established at Rahim Yar Khan during the year.

• Production of basic and pre-basic seed of all approved cotton varieties. heat and pest tolerance. drought resistance. short duration with desirable fiber traits. . virus resistance.RESEARCH OBJECTIVES: • Evolution/development of new cotton genotypes possessing high yield potential. • To determine optimum requirements for high economic returns of new and promising cotton strains. • Identification and incorporation of plant characteristics having resistance to insect pest and diseases.

ACHIVEMENTS Since the establishment of Institute. Breeding.e. As a result. Agronomy and Entomology on cotton crop are being conducted. . a number of experiments on different disciplines i.

The findings of these experiments are as under:  The best sowing period of cotton crop is 15 April to 15 May. Faisalabad has tested the advance material of different Cotton Research Institutes of Pakistan during 2002. Plant Virology Section. Agronomic experiments have also been carried out on various aspects. The strain (RH-510) of this Station showed maximum tolerance against CLCV and drought.  The Plant Virologist. 647/09. 4002/10 & 445/09 gave better yield & resistance against CLCV. developing better varieties.Besides. . 666-S.  The new strains RH-625.
