Rice exporters to set up seed processing unit
Pakistan Times
Rice exporters will establish a seed processing mill in Larkana to produce good quality rice seed in the province to boost country's exports.

This was stated by the former chairman Rice Exporters Association of Pakistan (REAP) Abdul Rahim Janoo here Wednesday. He was of the opinion that good quality rice seed will increase the yield and produce good quality rice for exports.

He said that the supreme council of REAP and Sindh Balochistan Rice Millers and Traders Association (SBRMTA) in a meeting held here Tuesday have decided to set up a quality seed corporation in this regard.

He said that president SBRMTA Gada Hussain Mahesar has agreed with the REAP that there was a need for a quality seed corporation in the country to produce better quality rice. The proposed corporation with five members each from REAP and SBRMTA, will ensure that right quality seeds of basmati and IRRI-6 and IRRI-9 are supplied to growers at commercial rates. Janoo said that all rice growers, millers, traders and exporters will get together at Larkana on the invitation of SBRMTA and visit various rice growing areas in the district.

Praising the support and cooperation of president SBRMTA Gada Husain Mahesar, he said that his (Mahesar) valuable advises on various varieties of rice in Sindh has helped in the production of better quality of rice for export purposes. Janoo said that 18 varieties of rice, including eight of basmati and 10 of IRRI are available for growers in Sindh. This is for the first time that such a wide choice of rice varieties is available for exporters in the province.
