MULTAN, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 10th Jun, 2017 ) : Farmers have been advised to root out weeds from cotton fields to get good yield, said assistant director agriculture Naveed Asmat Kohloon here on Saturday.
Weed control through herbicides, mechanical or manual methods leads to environmental pollution and high production cost, he said and added that the situation demands a comprehensive approach ahead of sowing cotton crop.
According to an estimate, weeds consume five to six times more nitrogen (N), five to twelve times more phosphorus (P), and two to five times more potassium (K) than the cotton crop and reduce the yield.
