Pakistan can boost sugarcane production sufficiently by adopting modern techniques, says a report published by Wealth PK on Friday.

In Pakistan, there is a vast scope of increasing per hectare yield of sugarcane by adopting modern farming techniques and using new and better varieties of sugarcane which are drought-, salt- and disease-resistant.

Pakistan is the fifth largest sugarcane producer in the world, and the sugarcane-related industry is the second largest in the country after the cotton industry. Chairman PARC Dr Ghulam Mohammad Ali said in an interview with INP-Wealth PK that PARC is working on introducing new high-yield and disease-resistant varieties of sugarcane.
