NASHIK: The Khandesh Ginning and Pressing Factory Owners Association (KGPFOA) in Jalgaon has urged the Maharashtra government to bring new varieties of cotton with more yield.
Pradeep Jain, the president of the association, said that the average yield of cotton in the country is three to four quintal per acre. Jalgaon is one of the districts in the country that produces 4.5 quintals per acre.
“Presently, varieties are old ones and we need to bring new cotton varieties to increase the yield. This will also benefit the cotton farmers as their income will increase due to rise in production. We want the state to take efforts in providing new cotton varieties so that yield will increase,” said Jain.
In Maharashtra, cotton acreage is around 42 lakh hectares, including 9.5 lakh hectares in four districts of north Maharashtra.
