Farmers urged to grow more wheat
KHANEWAL: District Coordination Officer Qazi Mohammad Ishfaq urged farmers to grow more wheat otherwise there could be its shortage.

He also directed agriculture officials to pay visits at union council level and inform farmers about latest seeds, ways and means of wheat cultivation. The DCO also directed the officials to stop the sale of substandard seed, fertiliser and pesticide. He also warned them of action if they failed to provide consultancy to farmers. -App
