Farmers advised to make arrangements before start of wheat harvesting
LAHORE, Mar 29 :Farmers have been advised to arrange threshers, tractors, tarpaulin and combined harvesters before the start of wheat harvesting.
A spokesman for the Punjab Agriculture department said on Friday that this year in February and March rain occurred more than usual routine so there was a possibility of a bit delay in wheat harvesting.
He suggested the growers to harvest wheat crop when it fully gets ripe and added that growers should stop harvesting in case of rain and continue when rain stops.
Farmers have also been advised to mention the name of wheat variety while filling wheat bag.
Growers should also make proper arrangements to stock their commodity, he added.
