Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL -

FAISALABAD— Mod­ern prac­tices like in­te­grated pest man­age­ment must be pro­moted and prac­ticed in fields to re­duce haz­ardous us­age of pes­ti­cides. This was stated by Univer­sity of Agri­cul­ture Faisalabad Vice Chan­cel­lor Prof Dr Iqrar Ah­mad Khan here on Thurs­day while ad­dress­ing an­nual func­tion of Depart­ment of En­to­mol­ogy, UAF. The vice chan­cel­lor said weak plant pro­tec­tion mech­a­nism, cli­mate changes and new dis­eases were bring­ing loss. He said con­tam­i­na­tion with pes­ti­cide residue and tox­i­cants were re­sult­ing in re­jec­tion of agri­cul­tural ex­port. He added that plant pro­tec­tion mea­sures help in­crease per hectare yield by pro­tect­ing the crops from dis­eases and con­trol­ling the pests.
