Dr. Muhammad Rafiq Akhtar, director Agriculture Information Punjab:

‘Pakistan should promote seedless citrus varieties’

According to Dr. Muhammad Rafiq Akhtar, director Agriculture Information Punjab, it is time to work on the energetic propagation of seedless citrus varieties to sizably expand area under its cultivation for exportable surplus that can attract dollars to Pakistan via exports.

Dr. Akhtar stressed it was time the plants of new varieties of seedless kinnow be prepared in bulk as early as possible in nurseries and be provided to farmers at lower prices. Seedless kinnow emerged on Pakistan agriculture landscape only after its natural mutations were observed and tested for many years and fruit and its production potential analyzed and matured.

The spring season (Feb-Mar) is best for grafting of seedless kinnow, said Dr. Rafiq in an advisory detailing technicalities involved in preparation of seedless citrus plants and grafting.
