The Punjab Agriculture Department (PAD) is providing female farm workers training to ensure cotton picking in line with the international standards.

Clean cotton picking is acceptable in market and contamination-free picking always ensures profitability to the farmers.

Punjab Agriculture Department official said, “Farmers should start picking of cotton bolls after 9 am and end by 4 pm. If there are chances of rainfall then farmers are advised to postpone picking of cotton and labor involved in picking should use cotton bags for collection and avoid mixing hair and other type of contamination in cotton bolls so that ideal price can be obtained.”
